George Clare lived most of his life in Barnet, Hertfordshire, England although it is known that he spent some time during the 1860's in Birmingham where he exhibited his work. There is not much known about Clare's artistic training; however, his technique, a delicate stippling, is derived from William Hunt.  Through his stippling technique, Clare was able to capture the beauty of nature giving life and individualize each aspect of the painting. Clare exhibited his first works in 1864 exhibiting at the Royal Academy and at the Royal Society of British Artists. Two of George's sons Oliver and Vincent were also artists and became quite renowned for their still life and flower paintings.
