The Evocative Light and Landscapes of John Atkinson Grimshaw

Launch Slideshow

John Atkinson Grimshaw is best known for his atmospheric paintings of misty city scenes, intriguingly mysterious country lanes and historic mansions encircled by autumnal trees, but he was also skilled in portraiture and still life. Sotheby’s upcoming Victorian, Pre-Raphaelite & British Impressionist Art sale on 13 December 2018 will present eight beautiful paintings which demonstrate both Grimshaw’s artistic development and his distinctive established style. Grimshaw’s paintings infuse scenes of nineteenth-century England with a romance and mystery that renders them timelessly alluring.
