Title: Turner, 1775-1851
Description: London, Tate Gallery Publications. 1974, First Edition. (ISBN: 0900874856) Hardcover with dust jacket, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851) English landscape painter. He was an associate of the Royal Academy (RA) by the age of 24, and professor of perspective at the RA from 1807 to 1838. Turner's paintings were revolutionary in their representation of light, especially on water. His style changed dramatically in his late works, such as The Slave Ship (1840) and Rain, Steam and Speed (1844), in which the original subjects are almost obscured in a hazy interplay of light and colour. His work had a profound influence on Impressionism. Fine/Fine.
