    The painting bleak and depressing. Good lecture but his impressions are the antithesis of mine.

    Gotta say, he picked the worst example of a painting to make the claim that Turner wasn't painting something that could be seen, reality, or something that actually happens. This painting is one of the most realist paintings of his later career, it absolutely looks just like reality. It's very grayed down, subtle, simple, the values etc. It looks just like it.

    What does it matter how the painting is MADE…anymore than how the car you drive or train you catch is made.?Let the art do the talking …not some opinionated lackey of the Nat Gallery.

    The evening star is in my opinion a significant moment in time according to Jewish life. It announces the beginning of the Sabbath on Friday night and the end on saturday evening. I might be wrong, please check this information. Also gematria plays a big role in Thora life. So What exactly Does the number 117 mean according to Jewish gematria ?

    Well done Matthew! Perfect pace, enthusiasm, clear layout of the talk and no notes, which, as a lecturer, I find particularly impressive.

    Even this fine speaker has regrettably adopted the contemporary fashion of using “impact” as a verb.

    Unfinished works reveal the artist mind in ways finished work cannot.

    I'm trying to enthuse my whole being into forming a positive opinion with regards to this particular work of Turner's but, alas, I'm fighting a losing battle.
    It comes back down to who the artist was as opposed to the art itself.
    Would Matthew Morgan be so willing to expend his time to present his love for this painting if it was known that a butcher or part-time plumber in the local High Street had executed it? Probably not!
    I have high regard for Turner and bear him no malice whatsoever, but the promotion of "The Evening Star" as one of his classics appears another example of esotericism within the art world.
