Artist Description Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851) was a exceptional English landscape painter who was accepted into the Royal Academy of Art at the age of just 14. Although he started conventionally enough, painting landscapes and the rare portrait, he soon became obsessed with natural events - sunlight, storms, rain, and especially the sea, whose raw power intrigued him. He was particularly interested in disasters, rushing to witness the burning of the Houses of Parliament in 1834 so he could record the event on canvas. Turner is best known for his seascapes, which explore light and shade in a way no painter had before; his work, far in advance of its time, prepared the way for the French impressionists who followed. We’ll explore his techniques through a homage to The Fighting Temeraire,Tugged to her Last Berth to be Broken Up, which Turner painted in 1839.
