26 Aug

TURNER Joseph Mallord William Alnwick Castle, ca. 1829

This paintong by Turner chosen really beacause of the bridge but nonetheless the subject matter dramatic and sublime.

Tje moon as the source of light and the contrasts o light and dark bothof which could be said to be Turners trademarks as he was the master of atmoshere
