Catalogue Note

"The mature work of John McLaughlin, the paintings from the last twenty-five years of his life (1950-75), are so thoroughly realized within the idiom of Western nonobjective art that it requires a sensitive viewer to appreciate their highly unusual character and their very real debt to Japanese art and culture. This is true not merely because McLaughlin insisted upon it. His own character was formed, in part, by his experience of living in Japan, his serious study of Japanese art and language, and his expertise in Japanese paintings and prints which at times provided him with a livelihood." 

Susan C. Larsen, "John McLaughlin: A Rare Sensibility" in Exh. Cat., Laguna Beach, Laguna Art Museum, John McLaughlin: Western Modernism/Eastern Thought, 1996, p. 15
