J. M. W. Turner, Storm Clouds: Sunset with a Pink Sky, 1833


"It draws towards evening as we wander about the ravine, and the cathedral towers fade in the tender light. We prepare to cross the bridge and ascend to the higher town. Very beautiful; almost unique, in this series of sketches, for quietness of colour; its bank of purple and plumy trees, against the golden light, is drawn with great care and completion."

— John Ruskin, from The Turner Bequest, on Turner's Lausanne, in Rosy Sunset, c. 1830
