Line(s) of the Day #JMWTurner

Self-Portrait c.1799 by Joseph Mallord William Turner 1775-1851

Light is therefore colour.

As said by the genius that was Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775 – 1851). I’ve always been a huge fan of the English landscape painter. He was the first artist that I remember seeing an exhibition of and have been able to see his work up close several times since. I’ve posted a review of one of his collections here and my favourite of his many works here.

    • Thanks. He was such a superb artist. Such a big fan of his work. I’m reading Wuthering Heights and one of his paintings has been used for the cover. I wondered why it was so good!
