About the artwork
About the artist
About the artwork
Famous for his paintings of views of the docks at Liverpool, Glasgow and Hull. In this painting he concentrates on the golden glow cast from the shop fronts through the fog, and reflected on the wet cobbles. The Omnibus receding from the viewer down a perfectly straight street is a characteristic and effective device, which Grimshaw repeated many times in such works. As an entirely self-taught painter, Grimshaw was heavily influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites, whose detailed styles he initially copied in his landscapes.

About the artist
Born 1863, Grimshaw was an English painter who learnt to paint from examples he saw in local art shops. Grimshaw gave up working as a clerk on the railways to take up painting full-time in 1861. His first paintings were of dead birds, blossom and fruit studies. He began to exhibit in 1862, and he showed five paintings at the Royal Academy of Arts, London. Grimshaw’s best known and most popular subjects are moonlight scenes. Often featuring mysterious atmospheres of mist-laden horizons, his paintings were particularly appreciated by middle-class clients.
