The Getty recently had a JMW Turner exhibition with all his amazing images of ships. This lesson was inspired by Turner and our upcoming trip to the Timken Museum in Balboa Park.


Students looked at a few ship paintings from the Timken Collection which included American Ship in Distress by Thomas Birch and A Seaport at Sunset by Claude-Joseph Vernet.
