Turner’s Venezia

December 29, 2016

When I think of Turner I picture his seascapes –– brown, moody and luminous. This paining, of Turner’s Bedroom in the Palazzo Giustinian in Venice, has none of the drama of his seascapes but is so beautiful to me. I love the colours and the light and the hand-painted ceiling. The painting is part of the Tate’s collection and although it’s not currently on display, visitors can make an appointment to see this or any other artwork in the gallery’s archives. How wonderful is that? To enjoy a personal viewing of a painting one loves.
