List for Late Turner

In Tate on 17/09/2014 at 08:29

Evocative tension torn through

his canvas. A brush full of wind

swept oils slashed deep in the name of

nautical creativity. Momentary tenacity

translates from natural reality to

artistic adaptation. Romanticised

development conjured through years

of sea salt sprayed sketches. Striking

cloud accumulation. Grand simplification

still delves into majestic spectacles.
