Clarence Holbrook Carter

Permanent Collection

Clarence Holbrook Carter’s paintings are in major museum collections throughout the country, but the largest single concentration of them, covering every aspect of his artistic development and including a trove of masterworks in oil and watercolor, are housed at the Southern Ohio Museum in his hometown of Portsmouth.  The abundance of Carters allows a healthy and ever-changing rotation of works in and out of the gallery dedicated to their exhibition.

After Carter’s death in 2000, the museum received a vast assortment of the artist’s correspondence, catalogs and publications, critical reviews, personal files and hundreds of the unknown photographs he used to inspire and form many of his most important paintings.
