About this artwork

John Atkinson Grimshaw was a British artist from the Victorian era, famous for his night-time urban scenes. Grimshaw's dedication to realism was fueled by his fascination with photography. He commonly utilised a camera obscura or lenses to project scenes onto a canvas, allowing him to achieve flawless perspective. 'Midsummers Night' is one piece from a series of paintings in which Grimshaw showcased a winged figure. The figure is placed within a fall landscape with her body contoured by Grimshaw to highlight her fair skin, and this contrasts strikingly with her golden halo's radiance.

About the artist

John Atkinson Grimshaw, a distinguished yet underappreciated painter, devoted his life to art in the face of adversity. Beginning his career while employed as a railway clerk, his self-taught journey led to the creation of detailed still lifes, and later a fascination with maritime subjects. Grimshaw's bold artistic experiments, from classical themes to evocative nighttime scenes, garnered him recognition. However, his masterpieces often remained in private collections, limiting his exposure. Despite maintaining a steady style throughout his career, Grimshaw's curiosity led him to try different methods, like integrating photography and textural additives in his works. Despite facing a financial crisis around 1880, Grimshaw continued to push his boundaries in art, exploring social realism, painting over photographs, and even delving into fairy-themed art. A visionary to the end, Grimshaw died at 57, leaving behind a legacy of innovative and unique artwork.
