Jansons Basic history of western art
There are multiple themes involved in Romanticism. The theme I connect most with is Nature. “The Slave Ship” by Joseph Mallord William Turner really caught my eye. Turners Contemporaries believed he gone mad since this wasn’t his typical type of work. This Piece was inspired by a poem that expressed sharks follow ships in typhoons by smelling sickness and death. This Paint is a close up of human suffering that is full of emotion. The bold colors representing the bloodstained waters and raging seas. The struggle is shown through arms reaching out for help. Bodies looking as if they are about to sink to the bottom and be lost forever. The wrecked ships show the danger of the sea vs man. “The Slave Ship” pulls every emotional string attached to the viewer.
