Description:
The son of a London barber, J. M. W. Turner (1775-1851) was an artistic prodigy who earned the recognition of his peers while still a very young man, and subsequently dominated British landscape painting. His fame spread to Europe and America during his lifetime, and after his death his achievements were ranked alongside those of the Old Masters. He measured himself against such predecessors as Claude Lorrain, and yet the chromatic brilliance and unusual compositions of his later paintings have drawn comparisons with more recent artists, including the Impressionists and the Abstract Expressionists. In this absorbing analysis of Turner's life and art, Barry Venning argues that it is necessary to look at Turner's work in its original contexts in order to understand the painter's creative decisions. His early career was dominated by the Napolconic Wars, and on his extensive travels he witnessed far-reaching transformations in social, economic and political life. Industrialization, agrarian change and constitutional reform are all represented in his work, but he also made a lifelong study of natural forms and phenomena, all of which gave rise to paintings that are as rich in meanings as they are in visual effects. Barry Venning covers all aspects of the artist's career and concludes with a fresh look at Turner's artistic legacy.
