  1. I saw a Turner exhibition in Hamburger Kunsthalle back in the 1970s (1976?). I remember I was impressed, although I don’t remember the details.

    • It’s WP playing games… (🙄). My apologies on their behalf.
      Seeing his paintings live is an experience to remember indeed! I’ve seen his paintings in London.

  2. What a mesmerizing painting. Saw a Turner exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario a few short years ago. Great show!

  3. I am celebrating William Turner with you on my side of the world. This is one of my favouite quotes (I had to add a quote) “It is only when we are no longer fearful that we begin to create.”

    • That is a very profound quote you chose, Rebecca and very true too. What a painter! Thank you for joining me in celebrating W.T.! Wishing you a wonderful weekend. Many hugs.
