Wednesday wallpaper: Turner`s Venice, from the Canale della Giudecca

Continuing the series of wallpapers created from various artworks, this week I present J.M.W. Turner's Venice, from the Canale della Giudecca. The romantic landscape painter completed this work after his third and final visit to Venice in 1840. This and others of Turner's watercolour works of this period influenced some impressionist painters.

I really like Turner's work, so expect a few more sets of wallpapers depicting his paintings over the next few weeks.
