1798: Tate Gallery at London

Upon exhibition, Turner submitted the following as an interpretation: "Till in the Western Sky the downward sun looks out effulgent-the rapid radiance instananeous strikes/The illumin'd mountains-in a yellow mist/ Bestriding earth-the grand ethereal bow/Shoots up immense, and every hue unfolds."
-The Seaons, a poem by James Thompson
