‘For countless millennia humankind has lived in step with the cycles of the moon; planting crops, wooing lovers and gathering harvests according to celestial clockwork. It is scarcely more than a century since this connection was decisively broken, since we turned our back on the sky and our faces towards the brilliantly lit interiors..’

James Attlee: ‘Nocturne’ 2011

We have traditionally feared the night and wanted to lighten the darkness, but for artists it has also been a zone of uncertainty to capture in painted form.  This display sets Leeds artist Atkinson Grimshaw’s much loved 19th century ‘moonlights’ alongside Turner-prize nominee George Shaw’s atmospheric paintings of the housing estate where he grew up (from the Arts Council Collection).

Also included are paintings by Jack Yeats, George Sauter and Walter Greaves.

This display celebrates the continuing partnership between Leeds Museums & Galleries and the Arts Council Collection, supported by Christies.
