Untitled Seascape is a watercolor sketch painted by esteemed English landscape painter J.M.W Turner. This image bears many similarities with Turner’s maritime paintings, especially with his famous 1840 painting titled, Slave Ship (Slavers Throwing Overboard the Dead and the Dying, Typhoon Coming On) in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
