Rain, Steam, and Speed - The Great Western Railway is an oil painting by the 19th century British painter J. M. W. Turner. This painting was first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1844, though it may have been painted earlier. The date is significant because the railways were still new...The painting is now in the collection of the National Gallery, London, England.
