This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

A painter who earned much distinction for his landscape and modern-day peasant genre scenes, George Clausen also painted portraits and still life.  Like the impressionists, Clausen subscribed to the idea that light was the most important subject of a painting, but his work, often with sparkling sunlight, was realist in style.

He was born in London and spent most of his career in that city.  He was elected a full member to the Royal Academy in 1906, and was knighted as Sir George Clausen in 1927.  His father was from Denmark and was a decorative artist, and his mother was Scottish. 

At age 14, he apprenticed to a London firm of decorators, Messrs Trollope, and while working there, attended the South Kensington Design School.  Shortly after he earned a two-year scholarship to that school. He also worked in the studio of Edwin Long, a Royal Academy member, whom he met when he was sent to Long's home to decorate a door. 

In Europe, George Clausen, studied at the Antwerp Academy and with Professor Joseph Van Lerius (1823-1876), and during this time, he did painting along the Dutch coast.  In Paris, he studied with Gustave Bouguereau and Robert Fleury.

Clausen was also a Professor of Painting and a war artist during World War I.  In 1929, his work was exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago.
