RA 1906. This was supposed to be a comment on the last post, but I don’t have a good colour image, so here it is in black and white. McConkey, 1980, op cit:
The Academy echoed a familiar critical gambit which was also applied to Stott and La Thangue, in that it found “Millet’s subjects with Monet’s truth to natural colour” in this work of 1906. This underestimated Clausen’s genuine achievement. He was not a pasticheur and Winter Morning could not be mistaken for a work by Monet. At a time when Monet had given everything for effects of light and colour, Clausen retained a naturalist painter’s sense of the scene before him.
