He is most known for his association with the Luminists. Luminism was an American style that was an offshoot of the Hudson River School in the 1850s to the 1970s. It is most often characterized by the atmospheric elements of a landscape, often a hazy sky over a body of water. These paintings often instill a sense of tranquility. The brushstrokes are not visible, but precise and hidden.
