In July, the museum, usually referred to simply as The Clark, unveiled their brand new space featuring cutting edge design by Japanese architect Tadao Ando, transforming the landscape of their 140-acre country estate.
A Family Affair
Established in 1955 just a stone’s throw away from Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts, Sterling and Francine Clark permanently displayed their vast collection of paintings, prints, sculpture and porcelain. Today, The Clark houses one of the most extensive collections of art in the United States.
French Impressionist Masterpieces
Having spent a great part of their marriage in Paris, the Clarks accumulated a considerable collection of French impressionist pieces including works from Renoir, Monet, Degas and Pissarro, among others. The Onions by Pierre Auguste Renoir is a highlight of the collection and is believed to have been one of Sterling Clark’s favorites.
