From early topographical watercolours to the great masterpieces of expression and light such as The Fighting 'Temeraire' (1839) and Rain, Steam and Speed (1844), this book offers a lucid introduction to the work of Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851). Ormiston's illustrated text is followed by around 90 full page reproductions of Turner's paintings, arranged thematically in sections on landscape and light, the sea, and history and mythology.
