William Turner, The Lifeboat Rescue

Photobucket

This painting was on a Christmas card which has been sitting on the mantelpiece for two or three weeks, and the more I've looked at it the more I've liked it. The colours in the scan are not quite intense enough. This is set in Brighton, I think, on a windier day than in Conder's painting above. The lifeboat would have been rowed out from the beach in response to the rockets from the ship in distress.
