When Turner exhibited his great pic

was disappointed because It had not
been sold at once at the private view
and angry with the press for criticis

"Yes," said Turner: "it was 500 guin

come prepared to give 600, and I must
think it over. At the same time it

After a few days Sir Robert called
again upon the great painter. "Mr.

to raise yonr price. I shall be proud
to buy that picture, and I am prepared
to give you the 600 guineas."

Sir Robert grew angry, and Turner
laughed. "I was only in fun," he said.
