Absolutely. It's a pity I can't post full-size images, but then, even if I linked to them, full-size in a PC monitor isn't full-size in any case    Very often you do need to see paintings like his full-size to catch all the nuances and finer details, especially with some of the paintings like The Stages of Life, his last major work.

Meanwhile, another painter to whom I'm devoted - John Atkinson Grimshaw (1836-93). His sunsets are spectacular but I've never seen any other artist paint moonlight as realistically as this:










I first saw this painting of Leeds on Paxman's series about Victorian art and was blown away by the pinkish glow. For a self-taught artist, Grimshaw was outstanding, but both in his own day and today his technique is thought crude by the experts - as if they could paint like him.
