Clare, George (1835-1890)

George Clare had a skill for capturing nature’s bounty with such detail that it appeared good enough to eat. While many of his contemporaries were focusing on the landscape, he was foraging through the hedgerows searching for inspiration. Today, he’s considered to be one of the finest British still life painters of his generation.

His work evokes a gentle walk in the English countryside and it celebrates the array of fruit we have on our doorstep. He paints berries, grapes, apples and damsons that tumble from baskets and rest within leafy foliage.

Clare exhibited widely during his life including at The Royal Academy, The Royal Society of British Artists, and The British Institution.
