Born in Paris in 1873, Marcel-Clement studied at the School of Fine Art and made his début at the Paris Salon in 1903. At this time he was best known for his Parisian street scenes, which captured so vividly the era of the Belle Époque and fashionable Parisian Society. Later in life he turned to painting atmospheric coastal views, and these are sought after in their own right. Following his début at the Paris Salon, he continued to exhibit there and at the Salon des Indépendants for many years. Between 1913 and 1914 he also exhibited in Britain at the Royal Scottish Academy and at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool.
Work by Marcel Clement is in the public collections at le Petit Palais, Paris, the Museum at Nîmes, the Museum at Strasbourg and in Tokyo Museum.
