Happy Birthday to Artist Aliffira Rezza!
Joseph Mallord William Turner was born in London in late April, 1775. Lauded as “the painter of light,” Turner was a British Romantic master of stirring landscape, treacherous seas, and sublime disaster. Witnessing the terrifying event from the opposite bank of the Thames, Turner recorded what he saw in quick sketches that became the basis for this dramatic painting.
”The Burning of the Houses of Lords and Commons, October 16, 1834,” by Joseph Mallord William Turner, 1834 – 35.
"You got the touch! You got the power! Yeah!"
“If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.”
