Art History in the News: JMW Turner still hot

My father informed me of this bit of news.  This article was from The New York Times.

J.M.W. Turner’s Last Rome Painting to be sold

J. M. W. Turner’s final painting of Rome, a landscape considered one of the artist’s most breathtaking images, is to be sold at Sotheby’s in London on July 7.

“Modern Rome — Campo Vaccino” (1839), with its vision of the Italian capital bathed in a cloudy light, is well known among Turner enthusiasts. It has been on loan to the National Galleries of Scotland in Edinburgh since 1978 and was displayed in exhibitions at the Victoria and Albert, the Tate and other London museums, as well as in a 2007-8 Turner show at the National Gallery of Art in Washington.”
