[2] In 1925, American politician and entrepreneur William A. Clark (1839–1925) bequeathed a major portion of his large and varied collection to the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington DC. The large gift of more than eight hundred objects, accessioned the following year, included European and American paintings; Near Eastern carpets; European drawings, sculpture, tapestries, antique lace, ceramics, furniture, decorative arts, and Greek and Roman antiquities.

[3] Clark purchased his antiquities as a group from the French painter Raphael Collin, an artist who was awarded the Grand Prix at the Exposition Universelle Internationale de Paris in 1889.

[4] Raphael Collin noted in a catalogue of his collection (1911) that he assembled his antiquities collection between 1890 and 1910 with the assistance of experts from the Louvre, particularly

Edmond Pottier, who was curator in the Department of Eastern Antiquities at the Musee du Louvre from 1908 to 1925.
