    A Disaster at Sea ? circa 1835 This canvas was never exhibited and is probably not quite finished, but it seems to be well on the way to becoming one of Turner's most powerful statements on the Romantic theme of maritime disaster. Its pyramidal composition leaves little doubt that Turner had seen Gericault's Raft of the Medusa (now in the Louvre, in Paris) when it was exhibited in London in 1822. Turner's own subject is the wreck of the Amphitrite off Boulogne in 1833 . The ship's captain abandoned his cargo of female convicts, claiming that he was only authorised to land them in New South Wales. Canvas; 1714 x 2203 mm frame: 2190 x 2685 x 173 mm N00558
