Pierre de Clausade was born in Paris in 1910. Pierre de Clausade did not begin to paint for exhibitions until the age of 31, due to his desire to develop an entirely individual technique which necessitated endless experiments lasting many years. In 1943, the artist held his first exhibition in Paris. It was an enormous success and similar results were achieved from further exhibitions that he held during the following years. Pierre de Clausade's fame quickly spread throughout Europe and soon reached America. Soon he was exhibiting in New York, Boston, Rio de Janiro, St. Paulo and Trans-Jordania. Clausade was a member of the Salon d'Hiver and also exhibited frequently at the 'Societe Nationale des Beaux Arts'. Examples of Clausade's work are to be found in the Boston and Minneapolis museums.
