An American painter and illustrator, Luther Emerson Van Gorder was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. A painter of genre scenes and landscapes, the first work shown may or may not have been inspired by John Singer Sargent’s 1885 “Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose” as Japanese lanterns were very fashionable at that point in time, both in real life and art. All works in the public domain.
