The Extraordinary Life and Momentous Times of JMW Turner

Franny Moyle

Born into an era of far-reaching change, Turner revolutionized landscape painting – and bewildered his contemporaries – with his visionary canvases. This biography recounts his life and career, from his birth as a barber’s son in Covent Garden to his burial amid the pomp of St Paul’s Cathedral. Moyle explores Turner’s fraught personal relations, follows his travels in Europe, and addresses the rumours of madness that haunted his last years. Felt-tip mark on the lower trimmed edge.
