John Atkinson Grimshaw (1836 -1893) is a Victorian artist who became famous for his gloomy views of docks and night scenes of urban lanes with leafless trees silhouetted against the sky illuminated by the moon. In the last years of his life he became a close friendship with James McNeill Whistler, who admired his work and admitted: "I considered myself the inventor of nocturnal landscapes until I saw Grimmy box with clear Lunaa."
