New York City and JMW Turner

Not too long ago I wrote in a previous blog about JMW Turner and my admiration for his paintings.

Last week at Christie's auction house here in NYC, one of his paintings fetched approximately 35 million dollars.

As mentioned by Beverley Morgan in an FT "write in", we can all take delight that Joseph Mallord William Turner was 65 years old when he painted Guidecca, la Donna della Salute and San Giorgio, the painting that sold last week for millions. Age is not a barrier when it comes to creating masterpieces.
