John McLaughlin is known primarily for his hard-edged, geometric style of painting. McLaughlin was born in Sharon, Massachusetts in 1898. He was a part-time painter even while he worked as a dealer in Japanese prints and also as a translator during World War II in Japan, China, and Burma. He and his wife lived in Dana Point, California where McLaughlin, a self-taught artist, started his painting career at the age of forty-eight. His experience in the Far East and his growing knowledge of European abstract art led him to a non-objective, quiet form of art. He concentrated on color and form to create a neutral image devoid of subject.
His paintings are understated and self sufficient in that they do not have a relationship to one another, they exist entirely alone. His work is not created for the purpose of self-expression; but rather is designed to evoke silent reflection within the viewer. His first solo exhibition was in 1952 at the Landau Gallery in Los Angeles and subsequent one-man shows followed at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington D. (1968), and the Pasadena Art Institute, California (1956, 1963).He participated in group exhibitions at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (1962), and the Los Angeles Institute of Contemporary Art, California (1974). He died in Dana Point in 1976. The item "JOHN MCLAUGHLIN Signed 1963 Original Color Lithograph, Edition of 16 RARE" is in sale since Saturday, October 5, 2013.
