Clark Bronson began studying wildlife at an early age. Familiarity gained through years of studious observation coupled with a love of animals and outstanding artistic skill has given his art a beautiful and intricate realism that is respected and admired by others in his profession. Arnold Friberg once said, “Clark Bronson is the best in his field.”
In 1960, Clark began illustrating for the Utah Fish & Game Department. By 1969 he was recognized as one of the leading wildlife painters in America. His magazine illustrations won national honors, and with national recognition came an incredible demand for his paintings. His art was featured on the covers of leading wildlife publications. National calendar companies, Chevrolet, Browning Arms, Mercury Outboard Motors, and other large corporations were reproducing his work. Rand McNally published five books using Clark’s illustrations, and collectors were buying his originals as soon as they were framed.
Just when Clark’s career as a wildlife painter was nearing full scale, he suddenly decided to switch mediums. Putting his brushes away, Bronson began sculpting. With his background in painting and firsthand knowledge of nature, the transition was made quickly and easily. With the completion of his first sculpture, it became evident that the precision and realism for which his paintings were so well known, was to take on even greater excitement and freedom in his three dimensional work as a sculptor. Collectors began buying entire series as soon as they became available. In less than five years, Clark’s wildlife bronze sculptures became widely collected throughout the world. Harry Horswell of the Tryon Gallery in London said, “Clark Bronson is the greatest wildlife sculptor since the nineteenth century.” Using both brush and clay, Clark has taken his place among the most talented and successful wildlife artists of his time.

Clark and Pauline Bronson began filming animals as a resource for Clark’s artwork in 1970. Intrigued with the beauty of this planet and the wonders of nature, they spent more and more time filming. Their videos will give you and your children or grandchildren a greater appreciation and understanding of all wild creatures and of our beautiful world.
