Atkinson Grimshaw's early landscapes were influenced by the pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood's ideals of painstaking detail, but he later developed a distinctive kind of industrial landscape, lit by moonlight, gaslight, or both. These urban scenes were very popular with the public, particulary in the north of England where he did so much of his work, but less so with the offical art world.
