Beautiful Bird Nest & Flowers Oil by George Clare

A delightful 9" x 7" oil painting of a bird nest and flowers by the listed British artist, George Clare. Including the new gilt and painted frame it measures 10 3/4" x 8 3/4". Clare used the technique of stippling, derived from the artist, William Hunt. Through this detailed technique, Clare was able to fully capture the beauty of nature. Following is a short biography of George Clare:

George Clare (1830-1900)
A painter of fruits, flowers and bird nests, George Clare worked in Birmingham, England. He exhibited in 1864, 1866 and 1867 at the Royal Academy. He also exhibited at the British Institution, which was established as a rival to the Royal Academy and was located at Boydell's Shakespeare Gallery in Pall Mall, London, and at the Royal Society of British Artists, Suffolk Street. He was an imitator of William Henry Hunt's small detailed pictures of fruit, flowers, blossom and birds' nests. He was the patriarch of a prolific family of artists who all painted in comparable styles, his sons being the painters Oliver and Vincent Clare.
