Starboard Light

Finished shortly before John Atkinson Grimshaw’s death in 1893, Starboard Light is often seen as the culmination of the artist’s myriad experiments on the effects of light. Highly influenced by the Nocturne series of his friend and neighbour James McNeil Whistler, this atmospheric twilight scene of a ship against the horizon is a quintessential piece by one of Britain’s great painters.
