This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Wellington, Missouri, Clark Cox had a career as a painter of theatre scenes in Louisiana and Texas, and after nearly sixty years in this profession, he turned to landscape painting.

He worked in New Orleans from 1891 to 1904, exhibiting with the Artists' Association of New Orleans, 1892 and 1894, and as the Chief Scenic Artist of the Elysium Theatre.  As a scenic artist and fresco painter in New Orleans, he worked for the Studio of Frank Cox, who likely was his brother, and their commissions included the decoration of the New Orleans Opera House.

About 1908, he moved to Houston, Texas, and then to Dallas in 1921.

As a fine artist, he was a plein-air painter in Texas of watercolor landscapes, working especially in the Davis Mountains and the Big Bend region.

He died in Dallas, and is buried in Houston, Texas.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following information is from Ron Ritchie, whose wife is related to the artist and who has an unpublished narrative by Clark Cox written in 1930 which the artist titled "A Narrative of the Origin and Wanderings of the Cox Family".  Written in great detail, this is a 59-page account of the artist as well as other family members. 

Clark first ran away from home with a traveling Indian show at the age of eleven, lived with the Indians in Oklahoma Territory, traveled in Texas and New Mexico, worked on ranches and often just took off for parts unknown, all before he was 17 years old.  He traveled extensively, first with his father, James Clayton Cox, and then with his brother Frank.  At times they were in business with the younger brother, Eugene.  In his later years, Clark Cox built and lived on a houseboat on Galveston Bay, Texas.
