The Reproduction Process

The Sun Rising through Vapour, c.1809. The painting by Turner
Colors used:
The Sun Rising through Vapour, c.1809

In this piece from early in his career, Turner truly demonstrates how and why he was an artist ahead of his time, as well as why he would become known as “the painter of light.” This exquisite piece of art was originally purchased by the artist’s friend and patron Walter Fawkes, and is currently in possession of the Barber Institute of Fine Arts, in the University of Birmingham.

As he was still hoping to make a name for himself to match those of the Dutch masters, Turner here still sticks to more traditional marine themes, in this case, that of the placid scene of the moored warship, but gives it a whole new view. By choosing to portray a scene of sunrise through the fog, Turner approached the theme through a lens that was not considered worthy by his contemporaries for being too drab, creating a piece of uncanny beauty.

The weather conditions lend a yellow hue to the scene, which consists of a foreground scene of fishers bringing back their catch on the boats to the left and the fishmongers preparing their goods for display in the jetty. In the background and through the fog a first-rate man-o-war can be seen, flying the British ensign with its one hundred cannons protecting the coast of England, a reminder of the Napoleonic Wars Turner was contemporary to which had seen England blockaded by the French.

Further back, a partially dismantled prison ship, a hulk, fires one of its cannons to either mark the hour or as a sign of respect to the incoming vessels approaching in the horizon. In the sky, the golden Sun it partially obfuscated by the fog, which itself takes on the celestial body’s color and paints the whole scene in gold. The common people in the foreground get on with their daily affairs, despite the gigantic floating reminder of the continental war that would change the face of Europe and the world forever.

In this piece, Turner demonstrates his mastery with not only light but also his understanding of his historical context, as well as a fondness for the resilience of the British common people, unaffected as they were by the looming war. He also manages to stay true to his genre of marine depictions, all the while showing his innovative verve.

Finest Quality Stretching, Gallery Wrap or Framing
Purchasing without a frame (unstreched canvas)

When purchasing a painting on its own, it will arrive rolled inside a secure tube with an extra 1.5" of white canvas on all sides so you can easily frame it in any local frame shop.

Purchasing a frame (USA only)

You may choose to purchase your painting framed, in which case, it will arrive "ready to hang". We offer more than 20 beautiful models, all hand finished and expertly assembled by our experienced framers.

Note that for safety reasons we can only frame up to a certain size. Once the maximum size is reached the framing option is automatically disabled.

Purchasing a Stretching Service (USA only)

If you are planning to frame your painting yourself, use an existing frame, or frame it locally, you may choose to order your painting with a stretching service, meaning that it will arrive mounted on wooden bars.

Purchasing a Gallery Wrap (USA only)

If you're considering not framing your painting at all, you may opt for a Gallery Wrap. The term Gallery Wrap refers to the way the canvas is stretched, which is by wrapping it around thick stretcher bars, about 1.5 inch thick, with the canvas being secured to the back rather than the sides of those bars.

All orders ship express and usually arrive within 4-5 days from the shipping date.
