Painters Work Luther Emerson Van Gorder (1861–1931): Japanese Lanterns, 1895, oil on canvas, 28 1/4″ x 22 half of”, Tweed Museum of Artwork, College of Minnesota Duluth, USA . .
Luther Emerson Van Gorder was recognized primarily as a painter of moody seascapes and nostalgic style scenes.
His ‘Japanese Lanterns’ is a fantastic instance of the modified impressionism favored by many American painters. The lifelike remedy of his topic is mixed with impressionistic daubs of vivid shade, heat glowing mild, and a thick and lively paint floor, the place seen brushstrokes suggest swirling motion — all of which assist the theme of childhood innocence, delight and surprise. In each topic and elegance, the work was clearly modeled after John Singer Sargent’s Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose, which was painted in London in 1885. (Tweed Museum of Artwork)
