Clarence Holbrook Carter, American 1904-2000

22" x 28.5" signed lower right and dated 1947. View of the Washington Monument at night--as a long time Washington, DC dealer, I had to buy this work from this important Modernist artist. Biography: A major watercolorist in the Cleveland, Ohio area in the early 20th century as well as teacher, Clarence Carter was born in Portsmouth, Ohio, and received recognition for his art talent beginning with his childhood. From 1923 to 1927, he enrolled in the Cleveland School of Art* and earned key patronage from William Millikin, local arts supporter who arranged for Carter to study in Italy with Hans Hofmann in 1927. From 1929 to 1937, Carter taught at the Cleveland Museum of Art, a job arranged by Millikin. From 1937 to 1938, he was Director of the Federal Art Project* for Northeastern Ohio, and from 1938 to 1944, he taught at the Carnegie Institute. He also served as guest instructor at various institutions including the Minneapolis School of Fine Arts* (1949), Lehigh University (1954), Ohio University (1955), Atlanta Art institute (1957), Lafayette College (1961), and the University of Iowa (1970). Carter was a member of the American Water Color Society* and in 1962, served as Vice President. He used a watercolor technique that involved precise use of form, quick color washes and little retouching. Source: Peter Hastings Falk, Editor, Who Was Who in American Art
