This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A 20th-century illustrator who was a student of N.C. Wyeth and Harvey Dunn, Clark Fay did illustrations for the Saturday Evening Post and Delineator.  As a young man, he traveled East from Denver, Colorado to study with Wyeth and Dunn.

In the United States, he lived primarily in Westport, Connecticut, but spent most of his career in London and Paris.

He was an enthusiastic polo player, serving in Connecticut as captain of the Fairfield County Hunt Club of which he was a founder and which became the Westport Hunt Club.  The Fays were both well known in that community.  When he and his wife, illustrator Nancy Fay, divorced, he moved to Chamant, near Paris and later settled in London.

The following, submitted February 2004, is from Nancy Briggs Harris, niece of the artist.

Clark Fay , 1894 -1955, studied in France and was a student of N.C. Wyeth.  He painted in oils and used heavy brushwork showing the influence of the French Impressionists.

Clark Fay did illustrations for Delineator Magazine, Cosmopolitan and The Saturday Evening Post including at least two covers.  He also illustrated two series on The Bible for Life Magazine.

His son describes The Old Testament series as dark and sensual in style.
