Lot Essay

Grimshaw's paintings of the 1880's have a much greater breadth as he sought to accommodate the possibilities of river and city life. A comparable work to ours also entitled Prince's Dock, Hull (1887; Hull, Ferens Art Gallery) is illustrated in A. Robertson, Atkinson Grimshaw, Oxford, 1988, p. 74.

We are grateful to Alexander Robertson, Curator, Leeds City Art Gallery, for his help in the preparation of this catalogue entry.
