"Après moi le deluge". Should we be expecting thousands of botany, archaeology and art fans to be poring over the new Clarence Bicknell web site? It was launched today, 14th July 2013.
This website was conceived in spring 2013 by Marcus Bicknell, Clarence’s great-great-nephew and finished with the help of family and friends plus web authors Rémy and Zelda of Lez'Art Creation in Breil, just a few miles from the Vallée des Merveilles. Special thanks to Susie my wife and Graham Avery for their writing and proof-reading skills, and Alice my daughter for the Clarence Bicknell Association logo. Italian translations are under way by Angela de Toma who works at the Musée des Merveille and Francoise Villain for the French. Esperanto translations are in place and Spanish ones on the cards for later. Just click on the flags in the top left to see the laguage versions.
Our photo (right) shows Lez'Art boss Rémy Masséglia who did the brilliant background images and other creative aspects, Zelda Zein who provided the structure and technical aspects of the web software Joomla, and Marcus Bicknell on the right.
The site gives some insight into Clarence the man, his life and works and responds to an increasing demand from Clarence-lovers in many countries. You’ll find some images out of the family collection that have not been published anywhere before. It also gives information about the Clarence Bicknell Association and how you can join (click on >Association, >Membership above). We would be delighted to get your feedback including webmaster issues via email: or via the Forum on this site for which you will need to be a member.
