Scope and Contents of the Records

Sound and visual recordings related to the Clark are collected in this series. The earliest recordings are copies of newsreels relating to the 1954 Epsom Derby and St. Leger, both of which were won by Robert Sterling Clark's horse, Never Say Die. This series is a catch all for any sound and video recordings produced by the Clark but not related to a specific exhibition or event for which there are additional records.


History of the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute

In 1950 Sterling and Francine Clark chartered the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute as a home for their extensive art collection. Opened to public in 1955, the Institute has built upon this extraordinary group of works to become one of the most beloved and respected art museums in the world, known for its intimate galleries and stunning natural environment. One of the few institutions in the United States that combines a public art museum with a complement of research and academic programs, including a major art history library, the Clark is now a leading international center for research and discussion on the nature of art and art history. Building upon the founders' legacy, the Institute has recently unveiled its master plan for the twenty-first century, which fosters the Clark's commitment to providing space for its expanding research and museum programs while maintaining the unique character of its beautiful rural setting.
