The work of artist George Clausen is filled with rural scenes and portraits which study light and its effects on his subjects. Born in London in 1852, Clausen's Paris studies at the Académie Julian were the beginning of his interest in painting plein-air, and light's effect on the landscape. As a teacher, his lectures were well attended by students, critics and painters, and their content was collected and published in several volumes. Artist George Clausen urged a study of the Old Masters, finding little use for experimental movements of the time.
