    About

    This watercolour records, on a grand scale, Turner's return from his third trip to Italy, begun in 1828. Leaving Italy in January, Turner's coach was caught in a snowstorm and 'zizd into a ditch', as he described it in a letter. The passengers were forced to camp in the snow until the coach could be righted. During the trip to Italy, Turner had produced a series of oil paintings that he exhibited in his rooms in Rome. This watercolour, enriched by bodycolour, was exhibited at the Royal Academy in the year of his return. It shares much of the solidity and depth of these oils and vies with them in size: it is one of the largest watercolours he painted. The artist highlighted his own personal discomfort as a traveller by placing himself prominently in the foreground, drawing the scene with his back to the viewer and with his battered top hat outlined by the fire. Turner was an English Romantic landscape painter, watercolourist and printmaker. Turner was considered a controversial figure in his day, but is now regarded as the artist who elevated landscape painting to an eminence rivalling history painting.
