An exploration of the last quarter century of the great, if eccentric, British painter J.M.W. Turner's life.
When Turner first meets Mrs. Booth, he uses the false name "Mallard" (derived from the fact that the M in his name, J. M. W. Turner, stands for "Mallord"). The second time they meet, she mistakenly calls him "Mr. Duckworth"--a confusion that comes from the fact that "mallard" is the name of a common variety of wild duck.
The sun is God! Ha ha ha!
When Dr Price attends Turner in London, he says he is taking the train back to Margate from Charing Cross station, which wasn't opened until 1864, 13 years after Turner's death.
