Clausen was a British artist working in oil and watercolour, etching, mezzotint, drypoint and occasionally lithographs.

At the age of fourteen, George Clausen was apprenticed to the drawing office of Messrs Trollope, a London firm of decorators. While working there he attended evening classes at the National Art Training School, South Kensington. Clausen was a founder-member of the New English Art Club and was committed to reforming the selection process of the Royal Academy. He was the most widely respected of the NEAC painters, promoting the interests of the Glasgow Boys. In 1904 Clausen was appointed Professor of Painting at the Royal Academy, a post he held for two years.

By the turn of the new century, he had adopted an Impressionist palette, to the point where his work was compared with that of Claude Monet.

He was later knighted in 1927
