About this artwork

This artwork's theme is inspired by book nine from Homer's epic poem series, the 'Odyssey.' It portrays the protagonist, Ulysses, escaping from an island where he and his crew were held hostage by a one-eyed giant named Polyphemus. The painting highlights the growing emphasis on colour and light in William Turner's historical landscapes. In 1856, well known English art critic John Ruskin touted it as the 'pivotal artwork of Turner’s career.' This reproduction is colour-coordinated to the original and has been approved by the National Gallery. Each purchase aids the museum's work.
