Description:
London: George Rowney and Co. , 1885. Cloth. Good. 12.5" by 14". J. M. W. Turner. A scarce collection of J. M. W. Turner's illustrations, featuring eleven colour plates. Containing eleven coloured plates mounted and framed in card (collated, missing five). Including illustrations of cathedrals, coastal scenes, and more. Turner's talent was recognised early in his life. Financial independence allowed Turner to innovate freely; his mature work is characterised by a chromatic palette and broadly applied atmospheric washes of paint. According to David Piper's The Illustrated History of Art, his later pictures were called "fantastic puzzles." However, Turner was recognised as an artistic genius: the influential English art critic John Ruskin described him as the artist who could most "stirringly and truthfully measure the moods of Nature." In a cloth binding with paper-covered boards. Externally, sound, though with some tidemarks, rubbing, and wear to the extremities. Ties… Read More
