Turner’s portrait faintly depicts, the Biblical deluge story and Moses writing the Book of Genesis, while demonstrating Goethe’s theory of light and color, by the transition of yellow from white, to a gradual appearance of ruby red;”The creation of color is dependent on the distribution of dark and light reflecting through a transparent object.”
Write a poem describing the distribution of darkness and light, throughout the painting and the dramatic shift of colors from pastel and pale tones, to darker and robust pigments. How does the utilization of color, light, and darkness make you feel? What emotions come to mind? What does the painting evoke in you? Write about anything this painting inspires.
