"J. M. W. Turner was a painter whose treatment of light put him squarely in the pantheon of the world's preeminent artists, but his character was a tangle of fascinating contradictions. While he could be coarse and rude, manipulative, ill-mannered, and inarticulate, he was also generous, questioning, and humane, and he displayed through his work a hitherto unrecognized optimism about the course of human progress. With two illegitimate daughters and several mistresses whom Turner made a career of not including in his public life, the painter was also known for his entrepreneurial cunning, demanding and receiving the highest prices for his work." "Over the course of sixty years, Turner traveled thousands of miles to seek out the landscapes of England and Europe. He was drawn overwhelmingly to coasts, to the electrifying rub of the land with the sea, and he regularly observed their union from the cliff, the beach, the pier, or from a small boat. Fueled by his prodigious talent, Turner revealed to himself and others the personality of the British and European landscapes and the moods of the surrounding seas. He kept no diary, but his many sketchbooks are intensely autobiographical, giving clues to his techniques, his itineraries, his income and expenditures, and his struggle to master the theories of perspective." "In Turner, James Hamilton takes advantage of new material discovered since the 1975 bicentennial celebration of the artist's birth, paying particular attention to the diary of sketches with which Turner narrated his life. Hamilton's textured portrait is fully complemented by a sixteen-page illustrations insert, including many color reproductions of Turner's most famous landscape paintings. Seamlessly blending vibrant biography with astute art criticism, Hamilton writes with energy, style, and erudition to address the contradictions of this great artist."--BOOK JACKET

"This book, which accompanies the first major retrospective exhibition in America of Bacon's paintings since his death in 1992, will give uninhibited voice to the thoughts of three prominent scholars of his art. Art historians Dennis Farr and Sally Yard, and Bacon's friend and biographer Michael Peppiatt discuss their views of the artist's intense and unsettling body of work, introducing a wealth of material that sheds new light on his creative life and working methods. Accompanying the essays are three historic interviews with the artist by Michael Peppiatt. Finally, Dennis Farr provides authoritative and illuminating discussion of each work in the exhibition."--BOOK JACKET

This second part of Sir John Rothenstein's autobiography begins with his taking up his duties as Director of the Tate Gallery, which he faced a discouraging situation. The Gallery's administration had collapsed the previous year; there was no official purchasing grant; the Turner Bequest was in lamentable condition and largely unknown; the leading artists of the emerging generation were unrepresented. Before he had time to make more than a beginning the War broke out, the collection was dispersed to places of safety, and the Gallery suffered heavy damage from bombing. With the return of peace Sir John applied himself to the task of securing the repair of the building, the re-construction of the collection, and the forming of an administration. In 1946 the Tate was partially reopened and for the first time a purchasing grant was established. The six years that followed were, Sir John believes, the most fruitful of his directorship. But in 1952 there came a savage attack on him
