Reflections on the Thames, Westminster by John Atkinson Grimshaw

Nobody can be uncheered by paintings of the moonlit Thames. Atkinson Grimshaw (1836-1893) specialised in such scenes, capturing the industrial beauty of the Victorian docks, the gas-lit cobbles of cities and the leafy lanes of the country. He comes by his painterly nickname easily…Painter of Moonlight!
