It would be hard to find a more idyllic landscape than this one, painted circa 1823 - that is, Turner must have been almost fifty by then.

William Turner - The Bay of Baiae with Apollo and the Sybil

What to say of these two precious but almost schematic watercolors painted in 1919, when Turner was about forty-five?

William Turner - Venice, Looking East from the Guidecca: Sunrise
(watercolor on paper, 1819)

William Turner - Venice, San Giorgio from the Dogana: Sunrise
(watercolor on paper, 1819)

And what about this other work, an oil consisting of no more than a few dabs of color on canvas painted circa 1835-40, when Turner must have been in plain old age?

William Turner - Norham Castle, Sunrise
(oil on canvas, c.1835-40)

I say nothing unique when I say, "What a master of light".

Even the dark forbidding examples of his work use the light, or lack of it, to create great effects.

A master of the economy of brushstrokes too.

Oh to paint like him. I know exactly what you mean Miguel.
