Luminism (Impressionism)

Emile Claus, Sunny Day (1899). Oil on canvas, 93 x 74 cm (36.5 x 28.9 in.) The Museum of Fine Arts, Ghent

Luminism is a late-impressionist or neo-impressionist style in painting which devotes great attention to light effects.

The term has been used for the style of the Marcel Jefferys, Yvonne Serruys and Juliette Wytsman, as well as for the early pointillist work of the Dutch painters Jan Toorop, Leo Gestel, Jan Sluijters, and Piet Mondriaan.

In the Spanish painting the luminism term or Valencian luminism used for the work of a group of prominent Spanish painters led by Joaquín Sorolla and Ignacio Pines, Teodoro Andreu, Francisco Benítez Mellado or Vicente Castell.

Both styles have little in common. Emile Claus's work is still close to that of the great French impressionists, especially Claude Monet, whereas Dutch luminism, characterized by the use of large color patches, is closer to fauvism.
