John Atkinson Grimshaw was born in Leeds in 1836 and became one of the most successful oil painters of the nineteenth century, best known for his moonlit urban landscapes. Grimshaw's early work reflects the influence of John Ruskin's writings and the paintings of the pre-Raphaelites. Grimshaw was also used Victorian photographic techniques, projecting outlines onto canvases with a camera obscura or painting over photographs. Grimshaw's enchanting compositions capture the beauty of the night, and make atmospheric prints for the home.

King & McGaw are probably amongst the best dealers in framed prints etc and having dealt with them several times last year I can certainly recommend them.

Loved the colours Atkinson used depicting the days end.It has a real peaceful and tranquil look about it. Made me think of how life was back in the day.No distractions just lovely nature all around you.
