JMW Turner

Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851) is acknowledged as the most important landscape artist in the history of art in the British Isles. His contribution to every aspect of his field was immense. Throughout a long and successful career he was recognized as a genius and his art valued even above the exquisite and rare pictures of his contemporaries such as Thomas Girtin and John Robert Cozens.

Trained as a topographical and architectural draughtsman, Turner learnt rapidly from his first master, Thomas Malton and by 1790 exhibited a watercolour at the Royal Academy, London. In that year he enrolled as a student at the Academy where he learned the high art of pure landscape painting.

From early in his career he enjoyed travelling to draw sites. He kept to this practice over many years travelling throughout Britain and Europe to observe beautiful scenery.

Please note: due to the age and type of paper used, some foxing may be present. The antique prints are sold in their original paper passe-partout (paper mount/mat), just as they were issued over 100 years ago. Please click on a thumbnail for an enlarged view.
