If you are a fan of Bouguereau’s art, you will like Clausen.
He studied under Bouguereau.
Does he remind you of Millet?
Remember my Millet in March fiasco two years ago? (giggle)
I haven’t been able to find the print I wanted to highlight,
French Peasant Girls Praying.
But here are three paintings to enjoy this Friday.
Straw Plaiter, 1883
Clausen’s forté was landscape and peasant art.
He believe that the subject of landscape art
wasn’t the landscape,
but the light.
I could do a month of Clausens. They are lovely.
