‘Sun Setting over a Lake’, Joseph Mallord William Turner, c.1840 | Tate
Artwork page for ‘Sun Setting over a Lake’, Joseph Mallord William Turner, c.1840 While the topographical details of this painting are hazy and indistinct, the sunset is vividly depicted, lighting up the sky in vibrant reds and oranges, reflected across the water. At the right, passages of white paint may depict snowy Alpine mountains, perhaps those around Lake Lucerne, a destination favoured by the artist during the 1840s.
