At Sea

For those who admire the work of J.M.W. Turner, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York will be a must-visit through early September for a special exhibition of his whaling works.

When it comes to paintings of the sea and ships, there is no one quite like this English master, who may have played an inspirational role in the creation of one of the great classics of Western literature.

"The exhibition also highlights connections between Turner's whaling scenes and Herman Melville's 1851 whaling epic 

Looking for a great read?  You've found it!
