Romanticist painters of the 19 century. Above is one of his paintings titled "Ulysses deriding Polyphemus".
The movie Mr. Turner, just out at the theaters, is a depiction of Turner's last 25 years of life. Some aspects of the movie I enjoyed but over all I found it a bit dull and hard to follow. My suggestion is to read up a little on Turner to get an overview of what is taking place. Such as his role in the art world at that time or what and why he painted. I think you will enjoy the movie much more!
