Turner And The Thames In Chelsea
This post has been written as a guest post for social media freelancer Mina Zaher for her great website King's Road Rocks! Mina has lived in Chelsea since she was 3 and King's Road has shaped some of her most wonderful memories.
At 10am on the 19th December 1851, Joseph Mallord William Turner died in his home in Chelsea. It was a foggy morning and yet just before his death, the sun managed to break through the fog to shine at the face of the man who was to become known as "the painter of light".
