Art, Genre, Western, Oil on Canvas, Cowboy, L. Clarence Ball, Victoria, 1901, 1058

Size Guide

This powerful painting is a Clarence Ball original oil painting, signed and dated 1901. The vintage work is a gorgeous oil on canvas depicting a horseback cowboy taking down a bull he’s lassoed, in a pretty wooden frame. The age of this piece alone contributes to its value, but the artist is also highly collectible.

“Born in Mount Vernon, Ohio, L. Clarence Ball was a painter, illustrator, and decorator whose primary studio was in South Bend, Indiana. His specialty was landscaped with cattle and sheep, primarily around South Bend and the Kankakee River as well as Diamond Lake in Michigan where he spent his summers.

He started as an artist working for the Studebaker Wagon Company, painting various scenes on commissioned wagons. Ball studied briefly (1892-1893) at the National Academy of Design in New York and also at the Art Institute of Chicago but was basically self-taught. He exhibited at the Boston Art Club, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. His work is in the Saint Joseph Public Library in South Bend, Indiana. In 1904, he was selected to exhibit at the St. Louis World’s Fair. Ball’s paintings are a fine contribution to midwestern art at the turn of the 20th century.” - Ask Art

  • Many of the jewelry items we sell are antique, vintage, and/or pre-owned. We acquire these pieces from dealers in New Mexico, Arizona, and Nevada, who work exclusively with Native American jewelry and art. That means they had a life before we found them, and they may show evidence of that previous life; signs of wear, dents, scratches, oxidation, broken stones, etc. We strive to be accurate and transparent in our descriptions of these pieces.

  • Jewelry items are not photographed to scale. We’re not trying to be tricky, our clothing items aren’t photographed to scale either (imagine how large that catalog would be!). Please check the description for the item’s dimensions and feel free to email us with any questions.

  • We are not gemologists. We choose pieces based on their overall aesthetic and how well they accessorize the Double D Ranch collection. Due to the high quality of laboratory-made stones and the influx of fake “Native American” jewelry from the Middle East, we rely heavily on our vetted suppliers to maintain a level of confidence in the quality of stones, provenance, and authenticity of each piece. We try our best to accurately describe the stones in our jewelry items but cannot absolutely guarantee them.

  • We celebrate aging. In ourselves, and in our jewelry. We want the true age of the piece to be represented, so we do not perform any type of cleaning or polishing. If the item is oxidized when we acquire it, that is precisely how you will receive it.
