Alexander Robertson’s book about Atkinson Grimshaw, a renowned painter of the Victorian era from Yorkshire, delves into the artist’s self-taught style, which often featured bright gas lamps illuminating dark streets and waterways, creating an evocative portrayal of the Victorian cityscape. Grimshaw’s work achieved significant critical and commercial success in his lifetime, and his paintings remain popular today for their distinctive portrayal of the interplay between light and darkness in the urban landscape.
