C. Myron Clark was a painter of harbor scenes and landscapes in oil and watercolor. Among landscapes he favored mountain views, forest interiors, river and fishing scenes, and especially seasonal landscapes. He worked mostly in Massachusetts, though his paintings of Mounts Skihist and Lillooet, north of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada (1921), Lake Louise in the Canadian Rockies (1922), Davison Glacier, Endicott River, Alaska (1921), Monte Pellegrino, Sicily (1914), Venice, Naples, and other European and tropical views, suggest that he traveled widely.

Clark is best known, however, for his marine subjects, including portraits of sailing ships, ranging from sailboats and fishing craft to the great clipper ships. Many are historic, such as the U.S.S. Constitution, which he painted many times, and the Mayflower (1893). Clark left a sizeable body of work. His work can be seen in the collection of the Peabody Museum in Salem, Massachusetts. His birth and death dates have been alternately cited as 1858 to 1923.
