The Clare family. George Clare (1835 - 1900).

More on Oliver Clare
More on Vincent Clare
They were Victorian artists, famous for their highly detailed fruit ad flower paintings -- George, the father, and his two sons Oliver and Vincent. The third son, David, never joined the family business.
Oliver (1853-1927) definitely received his training from his father - his technique is almost identical. Grant M. Waters ("Dictionary of British Artists") told an interesting story about Oliver's dog -- the artist taught his dog to stoke the fire and collect fruit from the greengrocer. On the night he died, he sang 'Abide with me'. His dog died the same night.

The youngest artist of the family, Vincent Clare (1855 - 1930), lived mostly in London, and never exhibited there.
