John Atkinson Grimshaw

2 October 2021—24 September 2023Free with an Annual Pass (£3 / Free under 18s and registered carers)

Five cleaned and conserved paintings by John Atkinson Grimshaw (1836-1893), a Leeds born artist best known for his nocturnal and urban landscapes. The conservation of the paintings have been generously funded by the former Friends of Scarborough Museums and are on display in the ‘Friends Gallery’ at Scarborough Art Gallery. Throughout the exhibition, the curatorial team will aim to use the paintings as research tools to examine a range of ideas related to history, culture and science, which we will share with our audiences through a changing programme of interpretation.
