In this first comprehensive study of the artist, now issued in paperback, Robertson shows the full scope of Grimshaw's work - from the early landscapes of the Lake District and Yorkshire to the townscapes, dockscenes, coastal views and richly colourful portrayals of sophisticated Victorian ladies. The author discusses the techniques of Grimshaw's art, and examines the many varieties of colour and mood that are captured in his paintings. He also assesses Grimshaw's place in Victorian art and society, comparing him with such contemporaries as James Tissot and Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema. Many of Grimshaw's paintings are in private collections and are here reproduced for the first time, ensuring the book's appeal, not only to art lovers and general readers interested in Victorian art, but also to dealers and collectors.

An appendix lists all the public collections which hold examples of the artist's work.
