Format: Paperback
The watercolors of JMW Turner have the concise, simplified vision of contemporary art even though they were painted in the mid 1800's. This survey shows the progression of this master of light and delicate color from tightly delineated landscapes to the atmospheric , nearly abstract vistas of his late career. The reproductions are supported by quotes selected from writings contemporary to the paintings. This book provides an inspirational overview of the work of Turner and belongs in the library of the serious watercolor artist.

I have discovered Turner, a painter that painted in impressionist fashion well before the Impressionists. His works are masterpieces, and this book on watercolors is a significant presentation of his work. The book was in excellent conditions.
