luminism Art style followed by a group of 19th-century US painters. The luminists were principally concerned with the depiction of light and atmospheric effects. They used careful gradations of tone to achieve these, so that no brushwork was apparent. The leading figures were George Caleb Bingham, Asher Durand, and members of the Hudson River School.
