J.M.W. Turner was renown for working on his paintings prior to exhibitions at the Royal Academy, London, right up to the last minute, during the so called "Varnishing Day". He would get onto a ladder or a bench and add the vital accent of color here or brush stroke there, working on his paintings, adding last minute touches, as they were displayed on the walls. His performances gained notoriety and in the end attracted quite a crowd!
