And more than that, in the late works of the painter Turner, the sea and the heavens are integrated into one, forming a huge storm vortex, engulfing all forms. These works seem to foretell the experiment of modern abstract painting, especially the experiment of the abstract expressionist Jackson Pollock. Constable used this technique of expressing storms in the form of a whirlwind as Turner's "Tinted Steam." "A blizzard - a steamboat leaving the port" is an example. From this perspective, Turner seems to be far ahead of the times.
