An essential introduction to the life and work of J.M.W. Turner, whose pioneering explorations into oil and watercolours transformed landscape painting and continue to offer revelatory and definitive interpretations of his time.


J.M.W. Turner (1775–1851) is arguably Britain’s greatest painter. An extraordinary and prolific artist of incredible range, his pioneering explorations in oils and watercolours, his innovative use of colour and the proliferation of his work through print media enabled him to forge a stellar reputation in his own time. Yet, his dramatic landscapes, marine paintings and revelatory scenes of industry, war and contemporary life are as captivating to audiences today as they were then.


This book is an essential introduction to the life and work of this influential artist. Tracing Turner’s journey from his modest beginnings and formative years, through to his tours and engagement with the British and Continental landscape, alongside pioneering historical, biblical and classical narrative paintings, it highlights his breathtaking technical skill and deep engagement with his own times. Showcasing an impressive selection of iconic and significant works from across his career, it reveals the enduring power of Turner’s work and the true extent of his artistic genius.
