The Burning of the Houses of Lords and Commons is the title of an oil on canvas painting by J. M. W. Turner, depicting the fire that broke out at the Houses of Parliament on the evening of 16 October 1834.
Along with thousands of other spectators, Turner himself witnessed the Burning of Parliament from the south bank of the River Thames, opposite Westminster. He made sketches using both pencil and watercolour in two sketchbooks from different vantage points, including from a rented boat, although it is unclear that the sketches were made instantly, en plein air. The sketchbooks were left by Turner to the National Gallery as part of the Turner Bequest and are now held by the Tate Gallery.
