St Paul’s Cathedral from Ludgate Circus,1885, by John Atkinson Grimshaw.

John Atkinson Grimshaw specialised in a distinctive type of nocturnal
townscape, usually featuring gaslights, and moonlit streets and as
fellow artist and friend James Abbott McNeill Whistler said of him, ‘I
considered myself the inventor of Nocturnes until I saw Grimmy’s moonlit
pictures.’
