  1. Pencil drawing on paper by Canadian outsider artist Clarence Webster(1900-1980)  Clarence Webster was born in Hawaii and adopted by a couple from Halifax. He joined the merchant marine at 15 and travelled around the world.
    Most of Clarence's work was done after he was confined to a nursing home in Toronto, Ontario when he used his art to brighten his room. His pictures depicted people eating, drinking and playing games. He used flat, colourful compositions and detailed linear patterns. The picture was often tied together with an attractive floral or geometric border. Image size 12” x 18”.  In the photo you can see yellow tabs in each corner which is holding the paper to a cardboard backing.  These are not attached and the image continues under them.  I am keeping it on the cardboard for shipping purposes.  Excellent condition.
