Turner was an outstanding romantic painter. Lewis & Lewis (2008) approve of the explicable way in which Turner presented his romantic art by describing the Slave Ship image as an ultimate romantic scene of wild beauty mixed with horror. The most interesting part about the artistic image is how Turner has managed to show both the destruction brought about by nature and the greed and fear of humans in one picture. The sad part about the art is how the slaves sink helplessly in the waters. This is indeed a remarkable piece of art work. Turner used this gift to explain to the world what was going on around them and perhaps aimed to achieve change from it.
It is interesting how Turner walked with his unwashed hands as a symbol of professional pride. “Sculptors find deep satisfaction in plunging their hands into wet clay and manipulating it” (Lewis & Lewis 2008). Similarly, as a profound artist Turner converted his hands to brushes so that one his critics complained of his perpetual need to be extraordinary. But this was who he is, walking with dirty hands could easily make someone mistake him for a farmer when on the contrary he seemed to view himself as a professional artist. This alone evokes a humorous relief.
Turners turn towards abstraction portrayed the beauty in his work. Stickland & Boswell (2007) talks of the gradual abstraction in Turners work in his attempts to make color alone inspire feelings. A good example of such art is his picture, Crossing the Brook, which has a blinding effect of the sun at its background. Evident by this picture, Turner painted nature at its raw, a visually captivating landscape that that could speak out the culture in it for itself. He must surely have put the sun itself into his paintings as most people said.
While his critics thought he had recklessly disregarded the rules of art, the much supposed recklessness were the basis of his triumph in the field of art. Turners erotica was meant
