Sir George Clausen RA, 1852-1944, was an English artist working in both oils on canvas and watercolour. He was knighted in 1927. He 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. George Clausen paintings excel in rendering the appearance of things under flecking outdoor sunlight, or in the shady shelter of a barn
or stable. His oil painting Girl at the Gate is now at the Tate Gallery. -- The Copyright of Scripts is Reserved by Toperfect.
