This violent seascape is set at the mouth of the Thames near Sheerness, where the Medway River churns the waves of the North Sea. Turner “loved Nature — the sea in particular,” observes author Meryle Secrest, “but he feared it as well, seeing in its beauty something magical, mysterious and terrible. High drama and catastrophe drew him irresistibly.” He is believed to have had himself lashed to a ship’s mast for four hours in the midst of a storm in order to experience the drama of elemental forces clashing at sea.
