Turner. The essential
The essential work of the painter Turner, 50 masterpieces reproduced "in accordion" in this box for all audiences.
William Turner (1775-1851) - born and died in London - was one of the greatest Romantic artists, a watercolourist of genius, a master of historical landscapes and a pioneer of research into light. Recognised early on by the Royal Academy in London, he travelled throughout Europe, from Venice to the Alps and Normandy. Insatiable, he diversified his inspirations and techniques. Storms and shipwrecks, devastation and fires, the struggle of the elements or of superior forces, precipices and infinite perspectives, dazzling to the point of blindness are among his subjects. The artist known as the painter of light has never ceased to approach the elusive in his works.
