Here is the artists biography:
An impressionist landscape painter, who until recently unfortunately was often confused with the American illustrator and painter John Ford Clymer (1907-1989). Our "John Clymer" has also been known to sign works as "John Moris" and now as "John Roby."
Until the internet helped to distinguish the two artists, the younger Clymer's works were pretty much sold on their own merits as attractive, impressionistic, colorful decorative paintings. Now, happily, biographical information has become available on him, enabling him to emerge from the misattribution era when he was mixed up with the American illustrator.
Clymer was born in Brighton, England in 1932. Early on his artistic talents were recognized and his father enrolled him in art education classes at the Royal Academy. In recent years, he has become recognized in England, the Continent and the USA for his skill in creating impressionist landscapes and coastal scenes.
