Luks, George Benjamin (American painter and printmaker, 1867-1933)

Note: American painter and draftsman, he spent a year at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Arts in the early 1880s before traveling to Europe in 1885. In 1894 he became an artist and reporter for the Philadelphia Press where he met Robert Henri, John Sloan, William J. Glackens, and Everett Shinn. His style was comprised of dark slashing strokes, and his subject matter was typically the social outcasts of New York City. This led his work to be characterized as part of the Ashcan school. He exhibited in the Armory Show of 1913. Comment on works: Portraits; Genre
