This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A painter of landscapes in Tonalist and Impressionist styles, Clark Voorhees was the first of the Connecticut Impressionists to discover Old Lyme.  In the spring of 1896, he was riding his bicycle and as an artist discovered the area, which later became a famous artists' colony whose members gathered at the boarding house run by Florence Griswold.

He spent that summer there, and by 1904, had married and moved permanently to Old Lyme.  He also painted and exhibited in Bermuda.

Voorhees was born in New York City, and studied chemistry at Yale University and art at Columbia University.  He then went to Paris where he enrolled at the Academie Julian and studied with Jean Paul Laurens and Benjamin Constant.  Returning to the United States, he was active in New York City, Boston, and as mentioned, Old Lyme, Connecticut.

Exhibition venues included the National Academy of Design where he was awarded the Hallgarten Prize in 1905, the Boston Art Club, and the Lyme Art Association.
