Louis H Grimshaw was the son of John Atkinson Grimshaw.
Louis painted moonlight town views in a similar style to that of his father. He collaborated with his father on many pictures, John would paint the sky and backgrounds, and Louis painted the figures etc.
In 1905 Louis gave up painting for good and became a cartographer for the Manchester Guardian. His work is consequently rare. Most of his pictures are views of London, which were commissioned by a dealer called Jackson, but he also painted in other towns.
About 1902 Grimshaw painted a series of views of London, as it was decorated for the Coronation of King Edward VII.
