"In this book, over 150 of Turner's works of every type are lavishly displayed and superbly reproduced. In his textAndrew Wilton builds up a picture in the round of a man ofmany secrets both professional and personal, using a broadrepertory of documentary sources including Turner's own writings in the form of letters, notes and verse, and recorded impressions by his contemporaries, later assessments, andreviews of his exhibited works. A comprehensive chronology, illustrated with portraits of Turner and his associates and views of places with which he was connected, sets out his travels, exhibitions and projects. Important light is shed on Turner's mind by a list of books in his library, and on the private man by an inventory of the contents of the London house where he lived for most of his long life."--BOOKJACKET
American sublime : landscape painting in the United States, 1820-1880 by Andrew Wilton( Book )
23 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,386 libraries worldwide
The painters who came to be known as the Hudson River School -Thomas Cole, Asher B. Durand, Frederic Edwin Church, Jasper Cropsey, Sanford Robinson Gifford, and others - found inspiration in our young country's natural wonders and were the first to paint many of its still-wild vistas. As America was settled and the wilderness receded, their successors - most notably Albert Bierstadt and Thomas Moran - carried their quest for the sublime to the Far West, communicating its breathtaking grandeur in brilliant views of Rocky Mountain peaks, roaring waterfalls, and vast canyons. Within a single generation these artists established the dramatic approach to American landscape painting that is celebrated in this stirringly beautiful book. The freshness of their vision, the intensity of their invention, and the energy of their execution were all born of the urgency these artists sensed in the life of America itself. Published to accompany a major transatlantic exhibition, American Sublime rejoices in America the Beautiful as seen in some of the country's most glorious landscape paintings. It contains a fully illustrated catalogue of all the paintings in the exhibition, with more than one hundred color plates, including three gatefolds. Biographies of the artists are included, and thoughtful and elegantly written essays cast new light on their ambitions and achievements. The lucid text places American landscape painting in the context of the international art world and of the European landscape tradition. And it explores ideas of national identity and empire in America, looking in particular at how these landscapes, whether real or imagined, reflect Americans' hopes and fears for their country. As a tribute to some of our most important American artists and the land that inspired them, this stunningly illustrated book will have a deep and wide appeal
Turner and the sublime by Andrew Wilton( Book )
33 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and Spanish and held by 1,028 libraries worldwide
Throughout his life Turner was profoundly influenced by the eighteenth-century aesthetic theory of the "sublime." However, as Andrew Wilton now shows, the sublime was not merely a springboard for Turner's innovations; he reinterpreted the theory with great individualism and offered it to the world as a fresh and even more far-reaching philosophy of art. The 140 illustrations, which include 32 in color, reproduce watercolors and prints that demonstrate the development of Turner's response to the sublime in areas as various as architecture, the picturesque, the "terrific," the sea, cities, mountains, and lakes. Many of the subjects have not previously been published
