Joseph Mallord William Turner - Returning from the Ball (St Martha)

As a change of pace, today’s “Ball” selection is a seascape, produced by none other than English painter Joseph Mallord William Turner, who needs no introduction here. My inclusion of this work in the series relies solely on the title, however, closer inspection of the figures might provide evidence of the “Ball”. I’ll take Turner’s word for it. Either way, I am content with enjoying his luminescent use of light, which always generates an emotional from me. Witnessing such a spectacular view would be a satisfying epilogue to one’s night out.
