Comments: New Hope (Bucks County) Tonalist and Impressionist. His landscapes from the 1880s through the first decades of the 20th-century are tonalist in brushwork, mood, and color; in the early 1920s his color lightened toward an impressionist palette. Lathrop's landscapes were painted primarily from memory. He was an important teacher in the New Hope area, teaching landscape painting at his home for many years.
