landscape painter. His style laid the foundations for Impressionism
. In his time, he was considered a controversial artist, today, he is recognized for his approach to landscape painting. He worked with light (he used to be known as the painter of light). He also masterfully painted with watercolours. An example of his refined style, which influenced the French impressionists, is his Rain, Steam, Speed
, in which he hinted at the form objects and plot of the painting using only the mixing of colours. A very similar work is also Fighting Temeraire
(a battleship that rose to fame in the Battle of Trafalgar) from 1839, in which the famous ship pulls into the steamer docks for dismantling.
