Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Well-written, loaded with information, and with a rich assortment of illustrations, each Discoveries(r) volume is a look at one facet of art, archaeology, music, history, philosophy, popular culture, science, or nature. These innovatively designed, affordably priced, compact paperbacks bring ideas to life and amplify our understanding of civilization in a new way.

J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851), considered by many to be England's greatest painter, made remarkable contributions to European art history. In a stunning career that spanned from the late 18th century to the mid-19th, Turner painted luminous, mystic landscapes inspired by his ceaseless travels through England, France, Switzerland, Belgium, and Italy. The treatment of light in his work, especially his glowing, misty sunrises and sunsets, forecast many of the developments of 20th-century painting. This concise and highly informative book provides an overview of Turner's career, presenting a selection of the artist's most significant and appealing watercolors, paintings, and drawings.

Synopsis:

- The titles in this popular series have a proven track record. - Excellent use of archival documents such as a selection of Turner's letters.
