Pair to 'Shade and Darkness - the Evening of the Deluge'. In these companion pictures, turner opposes cool and warm colours, and their contrasting emotional associations, as described by Goethe in his 'Farbenlehre' (Theory of Colours). The serpent in the centre of this painting represents the brazen serpent raised by Moses in the wilderness as a cure for the plague.
