Marie-Joseph Léon Clavel is a French landscape painter born in Paris in 1850 and died in the same city in 1923. He is better known under the name of "IWILL" (in English: "I want"), nickname he took from the start of his career.
From 1875, Iwill exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Français, then a little later at the Salon de la Société des Beaux-Arts, of which he was one of the founders. He participated in many orientalist, watercolor and pastel exhibitions both in France and abroad. He was awarded several awards at the various world exhibitions. Member of French artists in 1883, he obtained an honorable mention in 1884, and a silver medal in 1889 (Universal Exhibition). He was named Knight of the Legion of Honor in 1894 and received in 1900 the bronze medal of the Universal Exhibition.
Iwill was a great traveler, he set up his easel just as well on the outskirts of Paris as in Brittany, Normandy, Holland, Italy (Rome and Venice in particular) or New Zealand.
The landscapes represented by Iwill are bathed in a great softness and serenity although the skies which overhang them most often express the instability of the atmospheric phenomena.
