PIERRE DE CLAUSADE
Very few artists have the desire to be different and to create something truly unique, however throughout Pierre de Clausades entire career, he strived to find his own artistic identity and set himself aside from his contemporaries. He found his niche with his great cloud masses and tranquil landscapes, transporting the viewer into a world of solitude and peaceful beauty. His landscapes delighted art connoisseurs and he found widespread commercial and academic success. Widely decorated by the French Salons, his peers and the establishment recognised Clausades achievements and talent, culminating in the award of the Medaille dArgent by the Jury of the Paris Salon in 1953. His fame soon spread abroad and the Boston and Minneapolis Museums of Fine Art acquired examples of his work.
