Joseph Mallord William Turner, The Slave Ship (Slavers Throwing Overboard the Dead and Dying, Typhoon Coming On), 1840.
The essence of Turner’s innovative style is the emotive power of color. He released color from any defining outlines to express both the forces of nature and the painter’s emotional response to them.
