J.M.W. Turner, Waves Breaking against the Wind, c.1840

Few artists conjure the epicness of the ocean like Turner. His famous seascapes are filled with all the mystery, energy and grandeur of nature – from the violent to the sublime.

One of the most beloved English Romantic artists, his paintings of the sea often carry a metaphorical significance. Working against a backdrop of societal flux and innovation – from the rise and fall of Napolean to the advancement of steam and other modern technologies – the dynamism in canvases such as ‘Waves breaking against the wind’ captures the changes and turbulence that characterised life in the mid-nineteenth century.
