5.0 out of 5 stars Turner's Century Retrospect September 13, 2008
If you are an admirer of Turner's work as I am, you will enjoy this book: A very nicely laid out survey of Turner drawings, watercolors and paintings along with the work in the same media of other artists of the period. I first saw Turner's "Fifth Plague of Egypt" in the Herron Art Museum in Indianapolis when I was a child. I was fascinated with the picture and have been a Turner junkie ever since. It is more than interesting to compare Turner's art with others of the same era and this book makes it easy to do so. And the illustrations show how Turner's inimitable style developed over his lifetime, surpassing the artists of his period and auguring the age of the Impressionists yet to come. If you want to see why Monet, Degas, Pissaro and Renoir called Turner "the Great Master of the English," this book will help. The commentary by Martin Krause is clear and informative. The text actually helps the reader understand the chronology of Turner's work. Turner's work begins as the epitome of Romanticism and then transcends the Romantic to a new era in art.

This book was conceived, published and printed in the United States. And it is a high quality product. Hurrah! You should get this book. It is a delight to hold and appreciate and a joy to read.
