Almost unknowingly disappeared into the fog and steam of the locomotive, a train in dizzying heights over a bridge to the viewer. Where is this journey going? Where does the observer still have his place? Will he soon be seized and overrun by the train and rapid industrial development for which he is the symbol? At first sight almost imperceptible, in the depths on the river people are moving on a rowing boat and put the two speeds shown in a direct comparison. The Great Western Railway was one of the first railway companies in England, expanding on a route from Bristol to London worked. In 1839 a bridge over the Thames was completed, over which now, in the year 1844 a railway drove. The chosen motif in rain-steam and speed, the Great Western Railway by JMW Turner, painted in 1844, is an exception in Turner's work. Otherwise, he paints landscapes that are mostly touched only by the blurring bright light of the sun, Turner shows here how industrialization and technology make a drastic difference. © Meisterdrucke
