Turner in His Time
Here is the ultimate, one-volume story of Turner’s life and work. Superb colour plates illuminate Turner’s range – dramatic views of the sea or mountains, sweeping landscapes, architecture, imaginary scenes from history and legend, panoramas of contemporary towns – while the fruits of his travels, not just over Britain but also in France, Switzerland, Germany and Italy, are presented in the context of his life. In the most attractive work for a wide audience ever published, the text reveals the man, the illustrations his genius.
Andrew Wilton was the first Curator of the Clore Gallery for the Turner Collection at Tate Britain, London, and is the author of many works on the artist, including the standard catalogue of the watercolours.
