The Evening of the Deluge
Pair to ‘Light and Colour (Goethe’s Theory), The Morning after the Deluge – Moses writing the Book of Genesis’. In these companion pictures, Turner opposes cool and warm colours, and their contrasting emotional associations, as described by Goethe in his ‘Farbenlehre’ (Theory of Colours). Turner has chosen the biblical Deluge as the vehicle for these ideas, returning to the Historical Sublime he had mastered in some of his earliest exhibition pictures.
Lil’Stones has a license to print these three Turners across three x 75mm or on single 75mm Lil’Stones during the ACMI exhibition, Light: Works from Tate’s Collection, running from the 16th of June to the 19th of November 2022.
