Attributed to George Benjamin Luks
(Willilamsport, Pennsylvania, 1867 - 1933, New York)
Born 1867, Williamsport, PA; active 1883–85, Philadelphia; 1880s – 1890s, Europe; 1894–95, Philadelphia; 1896–1933, New York (with trips to Nova Scotia, Pennsylvania, and the Berkshires); died 1933, New York.
Luks was a member of the Ashcan School, the group of realist painters taught and led by Robert Henri, but he was also a highly spirited and individualistic painter who took up European trends more quickly than other American painters of the time.
A prodigious talent with an untamable taste for adventure, Luks famously said, “Technique do you say? My slats! Say, listen you—it’s in you or it isn’t. Guts! Guts! Life! Life! That’s my technique.”
