Lot Essay

To date, six pictures of Heath Street by Grimshaw have emerged: one, entitled View of Heath Street by Night, is in Tate Britain. The series dates to when Grimshaw took a studio in Manresa Road, Chelsea, which enabled him to have greater access to London subjects. The upper part of Heath Street was one of the original lanes leading into the village of Hampstead. It was lengthened in the 1887-1889 Hampstead Town Improvements scheme to link it with the new Fitzjohn's Avenue.
