My daughter joined my at the AGO and then, as has become our custom, we enjoyed Dim Sum afterwards, where the new fellow in her life joined us. I guess she figured she's mellow me out with some art before I got to know this young man.
It was a nice day and (with apologies for my photography skills) I thought I'd share some of my personal favorites from the exhibit ...
His two "Goethean" colour theory canvases together, Shade and Darkness - The Evening of the Deluge, and Light and Darkness (Goethe's Theory)
The Morning After the Deluge - Moses Writing the Book of Genesis.
Close up of the corner of "Light and Darkness". Made me think Turner was about the atmosphere and people in his paintings were an afterthought.
"Hurrah for the whaler Erebus - another fish"
"Peace - Burial at Sea". This one prompted some interesting discussion about framing.
My "Fave of the Day" ... "Sunrise with a Sea Monster"
Close up of the "Monster" ... I think he's a cute little bugger
