Turner v3

JMW Turner


Turner did see

The glory of dawn

Ripples of water

Steam in motion


No Genius he says

Damned hard work he says

Tramp across England

Sketch, watercolour, look


A stop in Paris

Perfection in Claude Lorraine

Plagiarise, Perfect, Mould



Engrave, Illustrate Murrays Books

Prints galore, block the rest

Nice little earner, there



Veritable Venice

Captured, light, water

Reflection and movement

No Canaletto he

Movement and light

Is He


Capture the fashion

Childe Harold in paint

Roman ruins for Soane

Dido at carthage


Played the game

In the right clubs

Had the right friends

Kept the mistress discreet


A life of painting holidays !

Dinner parties !

Secret fun !

He respectable, you see

No genius, you see

Damned hard work ?


mm,yes Mr Turner

I see !
