Amazing Romantic Art (Joseph Mallord William Turner)

I know next to nothing about art. That, however, is not going to stop me from sharing a few images with you. There’s more to life than politics and psychology right?

The following paintings are by Joseph Mallord William Turner an Englishman from the late 18th and early 19th century. He is known for his impressive and innovative use of light. Obviously, none of this belongs to me.
