CLAUSEN, George (1852 - 1944)

In the Fields in June

Date: 1914

Media: oil on canvas

Size: 183.0 x 213.7 cm

Acquired: 1914; Purchase

Accession Number: NMW A 176

Born and trained in London, Clausen specialised in scenes of rural life and was preoccupied with the effects of light. Sketches reveal that he originally intended to portray six or seven labourers in this unusually large canvas. The subject matter recalls Millet, but the extensive sky is reminiscent of recent Dutch paintings of the Hague School.
