"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
William Blake by Robin Hamlyn ( Book )
6 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"William Blake is one of the most influential, but also one of the most perplexing, of all British artists. Probably best known for his verses of the hymn "Jerusalem" and his poem "The Tyger," he produced an enormously varied range of visual work - including prints, illuminated books, drawings, and paintings - appealing to a more diverse audience than perhaps any other artist." "This illustrated volume, published to accompany the largest Blake exhibition ever mounted, closely examines Blake's vision, personal mythology, political views, and highly idiosyncratic painting techniques. An analysis of Blake's life-long interest in the Gothic, both as a source of his own distinctive style and as an ideal of spiritual and artistic integrity, leads into a study of his life during the 1790s, when his radical political interests and innovative printmaking techniques came together to form a totally new visionary art. This is followed by an investigation into the sources from which he developed his ideas, language, and images - including an explanation of the key characters that populated his imaginative universe. Finally, the culmination of Blake's highly original vision, his major illuminated books, including Songs of Innocence, Songs of Experience, Europe, and Jerusalem, are unveiled. Throughout, a wealth of reproductions bring Blake's vision to life." "In two opening essays, Peter Ackroyd, author of the definitive biography of the artist, introduces Blake the man, exploring the apparent contradictions of his complex personality, and Marilyn Butler, an expert on the poetry of the era, casts new light on Blake in the context of the social, cultural, and literary environment of his time."--BOOK JACKET
