ClarkCMVThe paintings of C. Myron Clark range from cityscapes to landscapes to historical subjects, yet it is for his marine paintings that he is best known. He painted numerous sailing ships and often painted historic ships; one of his favorite subjects was the U.S.S. Constitution, which he painted many times.

Clark also painted scenes of British Columbia though he is most closely associated with Massachusetts. His landscape scenes indicate that he traveled to some degree, but biographical information about him is sparse. His birth and death dates have been alternately cited as 1858 to 1923. Fortunately, Clark left a sizeable body of work, and several of his paintings are in the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem.

His work is in the collection of the Peabody Museum in Salem, Massachusetts.
