Abstract painter and art dealer; Dana Point, California.
McLaughlin was born and educated in Massachusetts. His extensive travels in China and Japan later were an important influence in his work as a dealer and in his art. Due to his knowledge of Japanese, he was recruited in the Marines as an intelligence officer with the rank of Second Lieutenant, and later was a language interpretor in the Army, 1941-1945. After the war, he settled in Dana Point. His painting, Hope Deferred, was the first abstract painting to win first prize for oil painting in the San Diego Art Guild Annual. McLaughlin was a leading figure in the Southern California geometric abstraction "movement," and was included in the historic 1959 exhibition Four Abstract Classicists organized by Jules Langsner, where the term "hard-edge painting" was first used.
