Turner was a young man when he arrived in Salisbury in 1795, but already he had started to produce acclaimed watercolour studies of cathedrals, many of them undergoing restoration by the architect James Wyatt. Accompanying an exhibition at Salisbury Museum that examined the important commissions that resulted from Turner's contact with the region, this volume contains many rarely seen Turner works on architectural projects including William Beckford's eccentric Fonthill Abbey, Stourhead, buildings on the South coast and Stonehenge.
