Cheshire Road by Moonlight, 1883, John Atkinson Grimshaw.

John Atkinson Grimshaw was an English Victorian-era artist, a
“remarkable and imaginative painter” known for his city night-scenes and
landscapes.

In the 1880s, Grimshaw maintained a London studio
in Chelsea, not far from the studio of James Abbott McNeill Whistler.
After visiting Grimshaw, Whistler remarked that “I considered myself the
inventor of Nocturnes until I saw Grimmy’s moonlit pictures.”
