More art in ROTK

January 14, 2004 at 4:18 pm by Tehanu  - 

I mentioned in my review of ROTK that some of the shots seemed inspired by great paintings of the past. Isabel writes, “…the images of the Grey Havens are inspired by two paintings hanging side by side in the National Gallery in London. One is by Claude (also known as Claude Lorraine), a French painter of the 17th century: Seaport with the embarkation of the Queen of Sheeba The other is by Turner: Dido building Carthage and was inspired by Claude’s painting. They hang together by request of Turner himself. They are two of my favourite paintings and I was amazed when I “saw” them in ROTK.”
