Atkinson Grimshaw, Daylight and Twilight

Photobucket
Atkinson Grimshaw was a British painter who made his reputation (and fortune) by painting night-scenes like these:

But some of his other paintings can be striking too. This is entitled Snow and Mist.

Well, this is in fact a night-scene, but an unusual one, showing poachers at work.

We took the hare alive, my boys, and through the wood did steer,
Oh 'tis my delight on a shining night in the season of the year.

Twilight in the vegetable Garden, 1869.

Sand, Sea and Sky.

And at last a typical scene by him? No, this is in fact by the Czech painter Jakub Schikaneder!
