Painter - J. M. William Turner (1775 - 1851), London, England

Selfportrait 1799

It is spring and many people out there start to warm up as the sun warms their souls, minds and hearts. Light, Sun, makes me think about William Turner.

Look at his pictures and your breath will be taken away, the light in his pictures is indescribable you are drawn and pulled into his art. Few landscape painters will have the impact on us as Turner.

As a young boy I took my first step into the world of Turners art, guided by my Aunt, a Lady, beautiful in a classical sense, "l'Ancien Régime" and "Noblesse Oblige". Turner is consider in England maybe even the world, as one of the finest landscape artists. He devoted his life to his art and had exhibitions already as a teenager. Many artists have to struggle in life and their fame is after they have died. Turner could enjoy the fruits of being successful during his lifetime.
