Golden Light

I'm becoming increasingly convinced that John Atkinson Grimshaw is one of the most underrated painters. I've posted some of his work previously here. The painting below is titled Golden Light and was painted in 1893 when the artist was 57 (it looks even better if you click on it). I'll be posting some more of his paintings in coming weeks.

  1. I like his work.

    Here's a photograph I took myself within the past week:

    I consider it to be one of the best photos I've ever taken.

  2. Beautiful image, I'd prefer that there wasn't a woman in the painting, but I don't want effect he (the original artist) wanted with that.

  3. Apologies, I meant "...I don't understand the effect..."

  5. He's good, but also sentimental. The paintings make me a bit queasy.

  6. The pictures would have been considerably better without the human figures.
