Émile Claus and Luminism

Six Paintings. One Concept

Émile Claus is a pioneer of the movement known as Belgian Luminism, a kind of continuation of Impressionism in Belgium.

He cared for light effects and atmospheric conditions, and the brushstroke was Impressionist. But in Claus’ work the effect is more detailed. In his paintings there are more “exhaustiveness,” more brushstrokes and less “hurry” to capture the instant, the fugacity of the moment. What in Monet’s painting, for example, produces a more “sketchy” effect.
