This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Warren, Ohio, Luther Van Gorder along with Edmund H. Osthaus (1858-1928) and Wilder Darling (1856-1933), were among the most distinguished painters of the Toledo area during the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. He is best known for his views of Parisian flower markets.

While young, Luther Van Gorder worked for a Toledo newspaper, and then went on to study art in New York City, and then Paris from 1894 to 1896. He continued to live abroad for five years, and then returned to Toledo where he painted street scenes, landscapes, and illustrations.

His Parisian flower markets were a theme popular among Impressionist painters, but Van Gorder worked in a more conservative way, emphasizing a muted, somewhat Tonalist palette, and demonstrating care with perspective.

Biography from Questroyal Fine Art, LLC:
Luther Emerson Van Gorder gained international renown for his brilliant depictions of the French countryside, Parisian street scenes, and coasts along the New York Sound. The artist trained with William Merritt Chase at the Chase School of Art and studied under Carolus Duran at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Van Gorder’s innovative technique combined the informal compositions featured by Chase and other leading Impressionists with the sophisticated realism of French academicism and the subtle color harmonies of Tonalism. He became a frequent exhibitor at the National Academy of Design, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and the Art Institute of Chicago. His work is now included in collections throughout the country, including the Toledo Museum of Art, the Tweed Museum of Art, the Huntington Library Art Collections, and the Worcester Art Museum.
