Went to the Met Museum today with a house guest to see the J. M. W. Turner Exhibit. Here's an example:
The Angel Standing in the Sun exhibited 1846
Oil on canvas
support: 787 x 787 mm frame: 942 x 942 x 73 mm
painting

In the foreground are Old Testament scenes of murder and betrayal: Adam and Eve weeps over the body of Abel (left), and Judith stands over the headless body of Holofernes (right).
