I have a couple of items I am hoping you can help me with. The first one is what appears to be a black and white drawing/picture. It is signed by Rose Clark and is titled Ladies Day. It is approximately 15 inches by 18 inches. I also have an old sword, I believe civil war, it was found in an old tabacco field in the south. It is in a sheath and is about 36 inches long. I would appreciate any help. I do have pictures I can forward also. Thank you in advance.

Rose Clark

(1852-1942) the following biography came from the link below:

https://www.burchfieldpenney.org/artists/artist:rose-clark/

Born as Harriett Candace Clark in 1852, La Porte, Indiana, Rose Clark was trained as a painter and taught painting at St. Margaret’s School in Buffalo in the late 1800s. Shortly after, one of her students, Mabel Dodge Luhan, commissioned her to restore her Villa Curonia in Florence, Italy where Clark decided to reside for several years. Many of her paintings were displayed at The Buffalo Fine Arts Academy , and she also exhibited watercolors at the Women’s Art Club in New York. She was also heavily involved in photography beginning in the late 1800s as well, specializing mainly in portraits. She began a collaboration with Elizabeth Flint Wade, and also had some correspondence with Alfred Steiglitz who counseled and encouraged her in her art. He also listed her as one of the top ten American pictorial photographers in Century Magazine (Oct. 1902). Clark and Wade exhibited and published their photographs under a joint name. Their first exhibitions include shows at the Buffalo Society of Artists and The New York Camera Club in 1899. Over the next decade their work is displayed all over, including the Art Institue of Chicago, Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Photo Club de Paris, the Pan-American Exposition,Corcoran Gallery of Art, and the Albright Art Gallery (Rose Clark only). Clark moved to New York in the 1920s to advertise her portraits and paintings and returned to Buffalo in 1926. Clark died in Buffalo in 1942.

Artist Biography

The following is from Peter Kostoulakos, AOA, NEAA: Fine Art Consultant, www.pkart.com

Harriette Candace Clark known as Rose Clark was born in La Porte, Indiana in 1852 and died in Buffalo, New York on November 28, 1942. She was a leading Buffalo, New York artist and exhibited at the National Academy of Design, NYC, 1889-97; Art Institute of Chicago, 1897; Turin Exposition, Italy, 1902 (gold medal); Art Club of Philadelphia; Trans-Mississippi Exposition, Omaha, Nebraska, 1898; and The Boston Art Club, 1892-93.

As an officer and exhibiting member of the Buffalo Society of Artists, Clark held positions such as member of the council, the hanging committee, and the jury of selection. In 1895, four years after the society was organized, she began exhibiting portraits. Clark appears to be best represented and known for her watercolor and photographic compositions.

She was a member of the New York Watercolor Club and is listed in The Boston Art Club Exhibition Record of 1873-1909 as an exhibiting watercolor artist in the years 1892 and 1893.
