Albert Clark was the son of the Victorian animal painter James Clark (1812-1884), and one of the well-known Clark family of artists. Taught by his father, Albert found his great inspiration and success in equine portraiture becoming one of the busiest painters of horses in London around the turn of the century. In addition to racehorses, Albert Clark was also regularly commissioned to paint portraits of prize-winning thoroughbreds at the Islington Horse Show in London.
