Primarily, John Atkinson Grimshaw was a painter of the Victorian era who is most closely identified with the Aesthetic movement in art which took place during the same time period. He was born in 1836 in Leeds, England where little is known about his family except that his father was a member of the police. However, it is known that Grimshaw left his first occupation working as a railway clerk to become an artist. However, little is known about the training he may have encountered although it can be assumed that he had a strong affinity for art since he abandoned his traditional career for the pursuit of becoming a legitimate artist. John Atkinson Grimshaw would die in 1893 after creating a rich catalog of artwork as a legacy of his contributions to art in Britain and beyond. The styles of painting most frequently attributed to John Atkinson Grimshaw paintings are the Aesthetic movement and the Pre-Raphaelites. The Pre-Raphaelites were a group of Victorian artists including Dante Gabriel Rosetti who held a great amount of power in the world of the arts; they affecting the writing, criticism, and art at the time. However, Grimshaw did not simply copy the styles of his contemporary artists, but instead created his own style which allowed the paintings of John Atkinson Grimshaw to become recognized by others. He did attain commercial success as an artist thanks to many qualities of the landscapes and other subjects which compromised the vast majority of John Atkinson Grimshaw artwork. One of the most important quality in ascertaining the quality of the oil paintings of John Atkinson Grimshaw comes in an analysis of his choices of subjects which tended to follow the aesthetic tradition by representing attractive and opulent scenes filled with attractive women, rich décor, and beautiful dress. In his landscapes, Grimshaw was fascinated with light and painted varying representations of it as way to study, explore, and understand the qualities of it. Though he continued to base his work out of Leeds, he did actually possess a studio in London for some time. Though the earlier oil paintings of John Atkinson Grimshaw have a very detailed quality that exhibit his highly developed skills in the portrayal of lighting, toward the end of his career he began to experiment with some of the changing styles which allowed for looser brushstrokes and a greater abstraction of the subjects. This change can largely be attributed to the influence of Whistler, whose works became a great deal more abstract that most Victorian critics would have liked, particularly John Ruskin. However, this evolution in the style of John Atkinson Grimshaw oil paintings allowed for a new type of portrayal of mood, which was less restrained by the careful detail of the canvas. In effect, the paintings became more about the moods evoked than the technical representation of the subject which is a quality that would become a great influence to later movements in art. Some of Grimshaw’s most significant paintings are: Iris, Midsummer Night, Nightfall on the Thames, Hampstead Hill, Blackman Street, and A Manor House in Autumn.
