Reviewing the 1842 Royal Academy of Arts exhibition, 19th- century art critic John Eagles wrote of Turner's paintings in Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine: "They are like the 'Dissolving Views,' which, when one subject is melting into another, and there are but half indications of forms, and a strange blending of blues and yellows and reds… [the works] offer something infinitely better, more grand, more imaginative than the distinct purpose either view presents." Late-period abstract watercolors such as the ethereal Sunset, circa 1845, and the dramatic Burning Blubber, circa 1844-1845 (both included in "Turner's Modern World" at the Kimbell) feel so contemporary — either work could have been painted today. Of Britain's epic painter, Shackelford states, "Brilliantly managed accidents happen when the artist relinquishes control of the brush. He has the genius to know how to let go just far enough."
