Vincent Clare (British, 1855 - 1925)

Vincent Clare was a Birmingham painter of fruit and flower subjects. He was the son of George Clare and brother of Oliver Clare, also both painters. Vincent lived for most of his life in Southgate, London, although he was known to have exhibited at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool between 1888 and 1897. Of all the still life subjects Vincent painted, his flower compositions are recognised as his strong point. It is easy to see why works by Vincent, along with other members of the Clare family, are so avidly collected.
