The Importance of Being Turner

A key work of Joseph Mallord William Turner, British painter who died 160 years ago, now starring in a controversial cultural battle between London and Washington.


Running counter the stereotype of the poor painter who dies disgraced, Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851) was, at least during his last days, have a significant economic fruits of their labor income.
That money, however, would not necessarily recognize the hand of aesthetic appreciation. Only the passage of time allowed to highlight the virtues of Turner: expert landscaping in watercolor (whose technique was then analyzed in Europe) and "master of light".
Turner's vision, according to the critic John Ruskin, exposes the romantic sublime, one that continues to emphasize the vulnerability of man against nature and their designs. It is not coincidence that the theme of God, fire and subsidence recur in the work of the painter.
Precisely on that line also fits "Modern Rome Campo Vaccino" oil that stages a Rome wrapped in mist, and now stars in a sharp controversy between the British authorities and international art buyers.


The controversy began on the same day that an individual acquired the work to the record value of 34.5 million euros. As the acquisition means that the box will sooner or later Britain, the authorities imposed a temporary ban . The reason? Turner is considered almost an emblem of English art and there are "too many" of his works "spinning" in foreign museums or private collections.

To counter that, drank from the great source of inspiration meant Oasis, the same set of whose support during many tours around Europe wing.
British rock critics also recognize certain trace of Happy Mondays, and Primal Scream Rolling Stones. In North America, meanwhile, took until 2004 for the song "Lost Souls Forever" (see video) outbreak in the U.S. ranking.

Now, after years of slow but steady consolidation, Kasabian has announced, through its lead singer, Tom Meighan, who this month and work on the preparation of new material. Without going into details, it is curious to note that the media fame of Meighan has also been enhanced by joining controversial as alien as the participation of Madonna in Live Earth event or disproportionate Susan Boyle ("There used to sing and are manipulating, is horrible, "he said this).
The third album of Kasabian, "West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum" we should mention that was voted best of 2009 by Q Magazine and nominated for the Mercury Awards (awarded by the British record industry.
