Goethe's theory and Turner


John Gillespie
 

It might be of interest to note that JMW Turner was an avid student of Goethe's theories, to the extent that he referenced him directly in this 1843 painting which is in Tate Britain (although currently on loan in Nashville) :
"Light and Colour (Goethe's Theory) – The Morning after the Deluge – Moses Writing the Book of Genesis"
