The Painting: J.M.W. Turner

Allen Memorial Art Museum, Oberlin College, Ohio, Mrs. F. F. Prentiss

I've written quite alot about British painter Joseph Turner lately on Art Comments and rightfully so. Here is the painting that fetched close to 40 million dollars a couple of weeks ago at Christie's here in Manhattan, New York. This picture is the best that I could find online and I was granted permission to use the photo here on Art Comments. I would like to thank the Allen Memorial Art Museum.
