Hinkle, Clarence Kaiser (1880-1960)

Clarence Hinkle was a versatile American artist that worked during the early to mid-20th-century. Born in California, he travelled extensively, gaining first-hand experience of the various strands of European art. His style was multivarious, adapting his approach to line, colour and expression based upon the subject at hand. And ultimately, his love for painting led to recognition at the highest level - with exhibitions at the Met Museum and the Museum for Modern Art, New York.
