Reseña del editor
J.M.W. Turner was arguably the greatest landscape and marine painter ever. His output was prodigious: some five hundred and fifty oil paintings, over two thousand highly detailed and finely finished watercolours, and almost twenty thousand sketches, studies and rough watercolours. He excelled in every branch of landscape and marine painting, from elaborate history pictures and idealised scenes in the classical tradition, to tiny, jewellike watercolours of contemporary life on land and sea made for subsequent engraved reproduction. This book takes us on a grand tour of the artist s works.

I highly recommend this to novices in art history, but even scholars will enjoy having his on their bookshelves to share with others. I was quite impressed, and I've collected many coffee-table art books over the years. This is one of the better such works, providing a scholarly overview without becoming too pedantic.
