“ D. (son of Joh. Chr. Clausen D., already at the age of 37 honorary member of the Dresden Academy) is above all an animal painter, his Norwegian and German landscapes already technically not coming up to the excellent depictions from the life of the dogs, horses, roes, birds. In respect of loving observations these genre scenes could stand comparison with those of Edw. Landseer whose works D. had studied in London … A not to underestimating influence in this connection D. has excerted on an elder art companion, the ingenious Ferd. v. Raysky, together with whom he yearly made natural studies on the properties of their friends ”
(Thieme-Becker, whose estimate of his portrait drawings
“ drawings of partly extraordinary delicacy ”
corresponds with the one here, too).
