Description
Possibly the finest painter Britain has ever produced, J.M.W. Turner (17751851) was both profoundly original and astonishingly prolific, and helped transform the seemingly staid genre of landscape painting into an expressive art form of enormous range and power. This book reveals the extent to which Turner wanted his paintings to communicate intellectually as well as emotionally, and how intensely involved he was with the culture of his times, using landscape as a vehicle for ruminations on society, politics, and humanity. Sam Smiles discusses and illustrates the full range of Turner's work, tracking his career from the 1790s to the 1840s through 100 color reproductions, and explains his importance for subsequent artists.
