the William Kellogg School in New York City, then pursued his formal art
training studying drawing and painting at the Art Students League. His
sporting paintings and etchings soon brought him international acclaim and in 1938 he was asked to create the Federal Duck Stamp design.
In addition to his legendary artwork, Clark was an accomplished writer. His
first autobiographical collection of sporting articles and short stories was
titled "Stray Shots". It was published in 1931 and was illustrated with
thirteen original etchings by the artist. It has become on of the most valued
sporting books of all time. "Stray Shots" was soon followed by the
beautifully illustrated "Gunner's Dawn" and "Pot Luck".

one of the 20th centuries finest sporting artists.
