Description

Sir George Clausen (1852 – 1944) was an English artist working in oil and watercolour, etching, mezzotint, dry point and occasionally lithographs. Clausen became one of the foremost modern painters of landscape and of peasant life, influenced to a certain extent by the impressionists, with whom he shared the view that light is the real subject of landscape art. His pictures excel in rendering the appearance of things under flecking outdoor sunlight, or in the shady shelter of a barn or stable.
