Turns out I was not completely off when linking Turner with Rothko. Tate Britain is holding an exhibition right now with the two artists displayed alongside each other to highlight similarities.

Turner (1775-1851) and Rothko (1903-1970), divided by a century, are often paralleled because of their closeness in style, especially in Turner’s later work. Rothko once said jokingly; “This man Turner, he learnt a lot from me.” However, if we are to listen to the Telegraph’s culture critic we should not even make the effort to go to Tate for the Turner/Rothko exhibition; A show, which looks at a specious comparison between Turner and Rothko, is disingenuous.
