J. M. W. Turner (1775–1851, England)

Late oil paintings 3

Joseph Mallord William Turner was an English Romantic painter specialising in landscapes. A master of oil and watercolour painting, he elevated both forms to previously unknown levels in academic circles which previously favoured genre scenes of classical antiquity or religion. Unusual for his strong focus on landscapes, Turner produced thousands of works in which his technique led to such refinement that his later paintings foreshadowed impressionism and abstract art.

He is known as the “painter of light” for his ability to capture a quasi-mythical tone to a painting, the opposite of earlier schools of landscape painting which focused on realist depictions of architecture and figures. To Turner the structure of a scene was important, though not to be followed literally, and the environment should dictate the artistic technique used to create an authentic ‘impression’ of the location, rather than an exacting depiction.
