On the Seine – Morning
Richard Parkes Bonington

After his visit to London in 1825 Bonington produced a series of views based on the River Seine. Here ethereal forms in muted greys and greens are set against a luminous sky, the whole bathed in pearly morning light. Its handling and composition show the influence of the landscapes of Turner.
