Pencil signed original lithograph, 8" by 10" inside the mat, 14" by 16" as framed, inscribed by the artist in pencil at lower left "To Ann", by the important California artist ALSON SKINNER CLARK (1876-1949). Clark is known today as an important plein air impressionist painter, art educator and muralist. He is most closely associated with California, but as he was an enthusiastic and restless traveler, the artist's works were created in locations around the United States, as well as in Mexico, Panama (his artistic documentation of the building of the canal is widely recognized), and in Europe. His colorful oil on canvas works sell for thousands at auction, though lithographs are quite affordable. This example would appear to feature a Mexican village. Clark was born in Chicago and in the early years of the twentieth century he traveled freely back and forth to Europe, in addition to his Mexican and Central American visits. By the 1930's he was firmly in Southern California where he became a well known figure in art circles. Condition: slight oxidation browning, and mat browning at the edges; some creasing at lower left, visible principally when held at a certain angle (and I have intentionally taken the photos of this area at that angle---viewed normally, the creasing is not nearly as noticeable). Allow for reflections in a few images. See the net for much more on this artist. .
