J.M.W. Turner was “the painter of light” long before Thomas Kinkade. Conceiving of light as the emanation of God’s spirit, he came, over time, to shun solid landscapes in favor of more luminous, abstract compositions, swirling with dramatic contrasts of tone and color. Here, gondolas and barges approach the city of Venice as the moon sets and the cold night sky gives way to morning’s golden radiance. When it was first exhibited, Turner quoted Lord Byron in the catalog description: “The moon is up, and yet it is not night / The sun as yet disputes the day with her.”
