R is for Rain Steam and Speed

The letter R brings you 'Rain Steam and Speed' by J.M.W. Turner. This has been one of my favourite paintings since childhood; we had a game called Masterpiece where paintings were paired secretly with values and you went around the board and had opportunities to build your art collection, the aim being to make the most money and to try and trick your fellow players into buying your forgeries. I am sure we all had favourites that we liked to buy, and this was one of mine. 
I would also highly recommend the film of Turner's life from 2014:
