J. M. W. Turner: Fishermen at Sea

J. M. W. Turner: Fishermen at Sea

A particularly striking piece that certainly influenced bits of Watcher of the Skies. Turner’s gift of light and composition get me every time. Image in the public domain, via Wikipedia.

  1. I love Turner. The Clark Art Institute had an exhibit of his works ten years ago including the restored “Rocket and Blue Lights.” Amazing.

  2. The Clark Art Institute is where I fell in love with fine art. I have a paper somewhere from third grade going on and on about how much I adored Gainsborough. 🙂
