J.M.W. Turner: His Art and Life

141 TUTOR: Jan Cox

J. M. W. Turner is regarded as one of Britain's greatest artists. A boy prodigy who achieved official success at a very young age, he travelled widely throughout Britain and Europe. His themes include maritime painting, classical landscapes and the coming of the Industrial Revolution. In his later works, he challenged accepted boundaries of colour and technique. Iconic pictures are exemplified by 'The Fighting Temeraire' (1839; National Gallery) and 'Rain, Steam and Speed' (1844; National Gallery)
