Pierre de Clausade exhibited regularly at the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts and became a member of the Salon d'Hiver. Then his fame spread abroad and his paintings entered many distinguished collections, including that of the Brazilian Ambassador and the Boston and Minneapolis Museums of Fine Art. Despite this success Clausade continued to develop his technique, striving for perfection and the satisfaction of his analytical nature. Pierre de Clausade was awarded the great honour of the Medaille d'Argent by the jury of the Paris Salon in January 1953. He died in 1975 and with him passed one of the most dramatic and striking expressions of the individual art has seen for many years.
