Turner met young Russian painter Ivan Aivazovsky in Italy in 1842. So impressed was the former by the young man’s talent that he wrote and dedicated this poem to him. Aivazovsky went on to be celebrated as one of history's foremost painters of seascapes. Here, the encounter between Turner and Aivazovsky is depicted as a moment of mutual and febrile inspiration within the verdant lap of nature. This latest episode in County Hall Arts’ A Sketch at Every Turn series stars Luke Christian and Rikke Haughem.
