Item description for Turner On Tour (Pegasus) by Inge Herold...
This attractively produced flexi-cover edition follows the grand master of nineteenth-century landscape painting as he travels the European countryside, finding inspiration and themes for his renowned drawings and paintings.
Like many 19th-century Britons, J.M.W. Turner was a passionate traveler, and the landscapes, cities and people he encountered on his journeys throughout Europe provided the stimulus for a number of his sketches, watercolors and paintings. Turner on Tour documents the artist's European travels between 1802 and 1845, and provides fascinating insights into the ways the land and architecture shaped Turner's work over two of his most prolific periods. Nearly every page of this volume features stunning reproductions, most of them in full color, revealing Turner's brilliant treatment of natural light and its effects on land and sea.
