J.M.W. Turner believed that landscapes could convey a full range of artistic, historical, and emotional meanings.
He categorized his paintings as PASTORAL, EPIC PASTORAL, MOUNTAINOUS, HISTORICAL, ARCHITECTURAL, or MARINE.
As a critique of his attempt to put nature into convenient academic boxes, I created a sign that pointed out where you could find these aspects of landscape.
