Grimshaw - Humber Docks, Hull, 1884

By John Atkinson Grimshaw

Sorry, don’t have any of the technical specs on this one, and there’s nothing about it or the painter going on in the news — just thought I’d post it to bring the artist to everyone’s attention.

I first came across Grimshaw’s work on a book cover, and I liked it so much that I looked him up and downloaded quite a few of his pictures. I especially enjoy his night scenes — the green in the skies, how he can expertly show such detail in a pool of lamplight, how he leaves the ships as large, dark, hulking objects in the distance.

Here’s his Wiki, from which you can get his bio and links to collections of his work. 03971semajtniapcco
