William McGregor Paxton was a member of the Boston School; an artist group which combined the painterliness of Impressionism with a more conservative approach to figure painting. Describing Glow of Gold, Gleam of Pearl as “the masterpiece of Paxton’s early career,” the Indianapolis Museum of Art observes how “The figure’s silhouette and theatrical pose are reminiscent of Jean Léon Gérôme’s academic paintings, which Paxton would have seen during his training with Gérôme in Paris,” yet, “Instead of the smooth, idealizing finish characteristic of French nudes, this figure is brushed with a modified impressionist flourish. The model’s ruddy complexion captured as a reflection on the nearby walls give her flesh a sensuous realism.”
