Commonly known as “the painter of light,” he was also a skilled printmaker, and his work is regarded as a preface to Impressionism. Drawing mainly on Tate’s unparalleled collection, this lavishly illustrated book provides a general survey of Turner. Accompanying a major touring exhibition in Australia and Japan, the book considers his work in relation to colonial art of the time, addresses the importance of the print market, and discusses his methods and materials. With essays from key academics and a detailed biography, this is a welcome addition to the literature on this great artist." --Publisher description."@en ;
