Enter a world of ravishing light and color. English Romanticist J. M. W. Turner transformed the essence of landscape painting from serene contemplative scenes to pictures pulsating with life, as if the sun itself were gleaming out of his canvases. Discover the shimmering works and wide repertoire of the “father of light,” who pit the Industrial Revolution against the scorching forces of nature.
