J.M.W Turner Masterpieces of Art

Short introduction with over 100 paintings highlighting the revolutionary approach by Turner, whose powerful sweeping strokes turned away from portraiture and prepared the way for Impressionism.

The English Romantic painter Joseph Mallord William Turner (23 April 1775—19 December 1851) was a brilliant landscape artist, a watercolorist, and printmaker. His style, powerful and fierce, melding the elements with humankind are thought by many to have prepared the way for Impressionism. In his time he was controversial, but his focus on land and seascapes widened the palette of artists and their audience, and his impressionistic brushwork prepared the way for the fragmentation of the modern era. This wonderful new book brings to life his greatest achievements, with such paintings as The Fighting 'Temeraire', Inside Tintern Abbey and Rain, Steam and Speed (The Great Western Railway).
