Summary
  • "The Turner Book goes beyond the usual interpretations of the artist, revealing the extraordinary self-belief and ambition that allowed him to continue steadfastly with his experimentation in the face of hostile critical attack, examining in detail key works and the techniques by which he realised them and featuring revealing extracts from his writings on art, letters and poetry. Illustrated with both well and lesser-known works and ranging over the entire course of the artist's career, this is the essential guide to Turner's life and work."--BOOK JACKET.
