The Clark brothers collect : impressionist and early modern paintings by Michael Conforti( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brothers Sterling and Stephen Clark--heirs to the Singer sewing machine fortune--were among the twentieth century's most influential art collectors. This volume examines their magnificent collections, their personal lives and public profiles, and their significant roles in the history of American museums. While the brothers shared a love for great art, they collected in different ways. Sterling was a private collector; his French Impressionist masterpieces, including thirty-eight Renoirs, and works by such American artists as Winslow Homer, John Singer Sargent, Frederic Remington, and Mary Cassatt now form the distinguished collection of the Clark. Stephen, a businessman and museum trustee, acquired modern works by such masters as Georges Seurat, Paul Cezanne, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, and Vincent van Gogh, often with specific museum collections in mind--including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the Yale University Art Gallery."--Publisher's website

Sterling and Francine Clark Papers: Correspondence Series by Robert Sterling Clark( )

These letters illuminate RSC's opinions on a range of topics, especially the political figures of his day, the United States' foreign policies, horse breeding and art. Notable among the Miscellaneous letters is the sheer number of requests for material assistance Clark received. There are accounts throughout the correspondence of small charities he bestowed on individuals. There are also many letters of thanks from various acquaintances for gifts.

Materials related to through Shên-kan by Robert Sterling Clark( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In 1908, thirty-one-year-old American adventurer Robert Sterling Clark organized a scientific expedition to northern China for the purpose of creating a detailed geographical survey of the area, recording daily meteorological observations, photographing the people, places, and landscapes, and collecting samples of the flora and fauna. Clark was fascinated with the Chinese nation and its people, but like many Westerners of his day he felt that he had only glimpsed the surface of this rich and ancient culture. Trained as a civil engineer, Clark brought a curiosity and method to the planning of his expedition, assembling a talented professional team that included a surveyor, a doctor and meteorologist, an artist, and the famed British naturalist Arthur de Carle Sowerby, as well as some thirty additional support staff. Departing from the city of Taiyuan in Shanxi province, the Clark expedition traversed ?Shên-kan? (the provinces of Shaanxi and Gansu), reaching as far westward as Lanzhou before returning to Taiyuan. In all, the team covered nearly 2000 miles (3200 km), primarily on horse and mule

The materials are organized by subject, with records related to the exhibition itself following extensive materials collected in the course of researching Clark and his family.

Some of the research came from the files of former director of the Clark, David Brooke. Some of this material is photocopied from his files, but more often it was removed from his records and placed with this research.
