The Field of Waterloo by Turner

Friend, foe, in one red burial blent!

Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage Turner quoted it with this painting.

Passionate, rotund figures of
Robustness with forthright appearances
Of large noses
are compared to the emotion
inducing moon
It shows a hazy darkness
Expressing a dislike of war
