Eye Candy for Today: John Atkinson Grimshaw cityscape

Glasgow Docks, John Atkinson Grimshaw
Glasgow Docks, John Atkinson Grimshaw (details)

Glasgow Docks, John Atkinson Grimshaw; oil on card, roughly 12 x 20 inches (30 x 50 cm). Link is to Wikimedia Commons, I don’t know the location of the original. SInce the Wikimedia image was sourced from Bonham’s auctions, I would assume it’s in a private collection.

This nicely atmospheric painting by the Victorian era English artist looks detailed and highly finished at first glance, but reveals itself to be quite rough and gesturally rendered on close inspection.
