J M W Turner depicted cloudscapes in all seasons and developed ways to paint luminous clouds and skies. One of the great patrons of Turner was BG Windus (1790-1867) who opened his collection of art to viewing by the public one day a week. His villa was opposite Luke Howard’s house on Tottenham Green.

Tate Britain recently (September 2014 – January 2015) held an exhibition of Turner’s late paintings, from 1835 until 1851, when light and colour became the dominant expression in his painting: Late Turner – Painting Set Free.
The painting above Study of Clouds, with a Shower Passing over Water is at the Tate Gallery, where there are many more of Turner’s clouds and skies to see.
