Hokanson, Alison (2016)

Description

This Bulletin centers around Turner’s depictions of whaling and seascapes. These expressive paintings, created when the artist was in his seventies, exemplify the boldly inventive style of Turner’s later years. The Bulletin explores Turner’s interest in images of whaling, considers the connections to Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick, and discusses the enduring appeal of these evocative marine scenes.
