    Benton Clark (1895-1964) Original Illustration (c.1920). Benton Clark is best remembered for his work in western illustration. Much influenced by the work of Fredric Remington and Harvey Dunn, Clark's images are dramatic and lively representations of the old west and its inhabitants. He produced numerous magazine covers and illustrations throughout his career for such publications as Liberty, The Saturday Evening Post, McCall's, and Blue Book. This early painting, believed to have been published as a magazine cover, exhibits more of a Rockwell-like influence. A kindly gentleman, perhaps a grandfather, cutting a young boy's hair at home. It is rendered in oil on board, measures 24 x 18 and is signed and dated lower right.
