Color palette created from painting by Turner, ‘Modern Rome’

J.M.W Turner’s nineteenth-century masterpiece “Modern Rome” which shows the ancient city dissolving into a thoroughly non-classical blur of limpid light LA Times.  I call this colour palette Turners Rome.  Turner was known as one of the most prolific of the great artists.  There is said to be over 20,000 pictures, drawings and sketches by his hand still in existence.  He has the distinction of producing single-handed a larger number of works of art than any other painter.
