J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851), widely known as perhaps the most eminent landscape painter of the romantic era, considered himself particularly a painter of historical landscapes.

Angel in the Sun is an unconventional study of the richness and complexity of Turner's vision of history as revealed through his drawings and paintings
