Found: Clara’s Sketches

January 3, 2013

Recently I received great scans of Clara’s sketches  thanks to Dan McDonald of Richmond Hill, Ontario.  On December 16, 2012 he wrote: ”Hi Verna here is a sketch of Clara Isabella Harris self portrait.  I’m interested in learning more about this great artist, and I have more stuff”.  
    Until Dan contacted me I had never seen a sketch done by Clara let alone this beautiful self-portrait.  
It reveals a Clara that looks quite different than her self-portrait in oil.  Unfortunately, Dan said that the sketch had been altered as Clara’s silhouette had been cut out of the original paper and glued to a background sheet.  This alters the value but not its rarity.
    Clara's sketches might be useful in identifying the place and time of your paintings.

 

Thank-you Dan!
