Atkinson Grimshaw: Painter of moonlight - picture preview
Thursday 15 September 2011
John Atkinson Grimshaw’s paintings of moonlit suburban lanes, gas-lit streets and docksides can be seen at a major new exhibition at Guildhall Art Gallery and Roman Amphitheatre from Monday.
The show brings together over 50 works by the self-taught artist from Leeds who became famous for his pre-Raphaelite style landscapes and nocturnal urban scenes with leafless trees silhouetted against bright moonlight.
Drawings, manuscripts and photographs will also be on display to help visitors develop a greater understanding of the artist’s public and private lives.
