What lies beneath?
Today's painting is Snow Storm - Steam Boat off a Harbour's Mouth, exhibited in 1842
This exquisite painting can be found in the Tate Britain alongside the rest of the Turner Bequest given to the gallery in 1856.
The myth behind this image is that Turner painted it while attatched to the mast of a ship.
