Turner Set Free At The AGO

 It enriches the soul to discover new artists and to try a different cuisine. One of the artist that has a current exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario is British romantic painter, Joseph Mallord Turner, J.M.W. Turner Painting Set Free. The exhibition currently runs till 31 January 2016 and features all of his paintings  and drawings on loan from the Tate Britain in London. He was known to be one of the radical and influential artist of the 19th Century because he developed his own technique in painting even before the Impressionist painters started. He was a well known watercolourists which influenced his technique as an oil painter. He was known to paint the sea, landscapes, mountains and the nature all around him. He even tied himself on a ship in order to experience the storm at sea and observed how the waves behaved so that he can paint them authentically. J M W Turner was truly an eccentric and original British painter worth to discover. 
The AGO built by well known Canadian Architect, Frank Gehry. 
Then after the exhibit, we ventured to the Entertainment District in Toronto on Queen St West and tried Indian food at Little India Restaurant. It was a delicious and spicy Indian buffet with freshly made roti, butter chicken, chick peas with curry and tandoori chicken which are among my favourites. Above is the dessert buffet section with authentic and delicious Indian desserts.
