John Atkinson Grimshaw, Liverpool Quay by Moonlight (1887)
“John Atkinson Grimshaw was a Victorian artist who became famous for his sombre views of the dockyards and his nocturnal scenes of urban lanes with leafless trees silhouetted against the moonlight sky. During his later life, he became a close friend of James McNeill Whistler who admired his work and admitted: ‘I considered myself the inventor of nocturnes until I saw Grimmy’s moonlight picture.”
I love these gorgeous cityscape paintings from Jeremy Mann. The dark blue variations makes the painting even better. The scenery he illustrates is truly remarkable. It’s like Jeremy completely took a photo and painted over it. The skyline and streetlights illuminates the area giving a nice feel. The texture and streaks alone makes these compositions worth the price. I love his work and I hope you enjoy more of his painting over at his site.
