This biography from the Archives of AskART:
From New Orleans, Clarence Millet was a prolific painter in a simplistic realist style whose work, some of it nostalgic, in the early 20th-century documents much of the lifestyle of Louisiana people in his area.  Of his painting, he said:  "I paint the things I know, see, and feel - I try to impart to the beholder an experience I have seen and felt."

As a young man, he worked in a store in New Orleans, where his art talent became apparent to persons who encouraged him to get professional training.  He became a student at Tulane University in New Orleans and then at the Art Students League in New York City, where George Bridgman was his primary instructor.  In the East, he earned special attention for his painting skills including membership in the National Academy of Design and exhibition of his work at the Pennsylvania Academy, the New York World's Fair of 1939 and the Art Institute of Chicago. 

Returning to New Orleans, he opened a studio in the French Quarter and became active in local arts organizations including the New Orleans Art Association, New Orleans Art League and the Mississippi Art Association.  He was also active with the Federal Arts Project of the WPA during the Depression.
