A masterpiece by Turner in his later years portraying light that seems to shine through from inside the picture.
그림 속에서 배어 나오는 빛을 그린 터너 만년의 명작
The ruins of an ancient bridge can be seen amidst the fog shining white in the sun. A pine tree in the shape of an umbrella soars on the left. It reminds us of an Italian landscape, but the location has not been identified. It is probably a view Turner, who continued to yearn after Italian light throughout his lifetime, envisaged in his mind.
This painting shows Turner’s style in his later years with all the motifs seeming to melt into the hazy light. Turner conceived the image of this landscape from early on under the influence of Claude Lorrain. In Liber Studiorum, a collection of prints which began to be published in 1807, the composition of this painting is presented as Woman and Tambourine. A woman playing the tambourine, a child wanting to dance to the tambourine, animals grazing, etc.—there is no significant change in the motifs, but the radiant light that seems to shine through from the inside is a style the artist attained late in life.
