About John Atkinson Grimshaw (1836-1893)
A British painter best known for his stunningly evocative night scenes, portraits,
and paintings of faeries, Grimshaw enjoyed success as an artist during his lifetime.
Although he spent some time in London, Grimshaw's base was his hometown of Leeds.
Influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites, he was said to have been a friend of the artist James Whistler.
New for 2011: Gloss finish and B-band preamp & tuner & XLR jack
Diaphanous faeries hover in the twilight on both front and back
of this guitar inspired by the artwork of John Atkinson Grimshaw. A folk cutaway body and
Luna's Orion 4 band preamp system give Spirit of the Night a versatility of sound that's equally
well suited to an intimate living room gathering or a concert hall stage. Luna Guitars' signature
moon phase fret markers seem a particularly well-matched complement to this guitar's ethereal
evocation of the beguiling beings that flutter on gossamer wings across the face of the night.
