Joseph Clarke was born in Dorset, educated at Dorchester and studied at J.M Leigh’s and the Royal Academy Schools. He exhibited at leading London galleries including the Royal Academy from 1857 to 1904 and sent paintings to America too. He received a medal and award for paintings in Philadelphia in 1876 and was a member of the New Water-Colour Society, although equally at home painting in oils. His paintings are meticulous and capture the spirit of Victorian England. A few of his works are of biblical subjects, but most are of a domestic genre with a tender even affectionate nature. This charming scene of children at play is typical of his style and quality.
