Ruskin, Turner, and the pre-Raphaelites by Robert Hewison( Book )

15 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Ruskin was the first critic to make his reputation by championing contemporary art: first by defending Turner, in his book Modern Painters, and then by giving his decisive support to the avant-garde, the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. He bacame one of the defining voices of the nineteenth century, engaging not only in the discussion of art and architecture, but in the social issues of his age. Ruskin, Turner and the Pre-Raphaelites, which marks the centenary of Ruskin's death, recovers his role as a contemporary critic by bringing together many of the masterpieces that he wrote about, and exploring his personal links with some of the greatest painters of the Victorian period. He was also an artist in his own right, and Ruskin's finest drawings are used to demonstrate the arguments of a critic for whom 'All great art is praise.' Also featured are many works that were in Ruskin's own art collection"--Page 4 of cover

Uniquely, this book combines unrivalled knowledge of Turner's working methods from Tate curators and conservators with practical advice from some of the world's most respected watercolour experts.

Expert contemporary watercolourists then explain, step by step, how to paint a similar composition, learning from Turner's techniques. This book is packed with invaluable information, from the materials Turner used to achieve the masterpieces we know and love today, to the modern materials the twenty-first-century watercolourist will need if they aspire to take on similar subject matter. Backed by the authority of Tate, the world centre for Turner scholarship, with a glossary of technical terms and the highest quality colour reproductions, this is an invaluable resource both for lovers of Turner's art and of watercolour painting"--Back cover

Turner's sketchbooks by Ian Warrell( Book )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Turner's sketchbooks offer perhaps the most appealing introduction to the artist. They give us a privileged look over Turner's shoulder, allowing us to witness the creation and development of ideas that can be traced through to his major paintings. In the absence of detailed written accounts of his extensive travels, the notebooks are also a record of his impressions of the many places he visited across Britain and Europe. This book is the first to survey the full range of Turner's sketchbooks, beginning with his teenage efforts and culminating in the atmospheric colour studies of his last years."--Publisher's website
Turner's modern and ancient ports : passages through time by Joseph Mallord William Turner( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Widely considered Britain's greatest painter, Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851) is best known for his light-filled landscapes and seascapes. A relentless traveler, Turner often turned his artistic attention to the theme of modern and ancient ports. In the mid-1820s, Turner exhibited two monumental, and controversial, paintings of ports: Cologne and Dieppe. Shocking for their intense luminosity and yellow tonality, as well as for Turner's unorthodox handling of paint, these works marked a transition in the artist's career as he moved away from naturalism and toward a new, poetic topography. This in-depth study of these two seminal paintings also addresses a wide selection of Turner's works in both oil and watercolor from the 1820s, placing them in the context of radical changes in British social and economic structures taking place at the time. Drawing from period travel accounts, contemporary critical commentary, and new technical analyses of Turner's work, this magnificently illustrated book brings a fresh, new perspective to the pivotal middle years of Turner's career"--
Turner's secret sketches by J. M. W Turner( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Up until a few years ago, biographies of both JMW Turner and John Ruskin had claimed that, in 1858, Ruskin burned bundles of erotic paintings and drawings by Turner in a fit of embarsassed Victorian censorship, to protect Turner's posthumous reputation. This title examines this little known aspect of the artist's oeuvre
J.M.W. Turner : the making of a master by Tate Britain (Gallery)( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851) was a controversial figure in his day, but is now widely regarded as one of the greatest landscape painters in history, creating compelling and atmospheric works in oil and watercolor. Commonly known as "the painter of light," he was also a skilled printmaker, and his work is regarded as a preface to Impressionism. Drawing mainly on Tate's unparalleled collection, this lavishly illustrated book provides a general survey of Turner. Accompanying a major touring exhibition in Australia and Japan, the book considers his work in relation to colonial art of the time, addresses the importance of the print market, and discusses his methods and materials. With essays from key academics and a detailed biography, this is a welcome addition to the literature on this great artist."--Publisher description

Turner's Wessex : architecture and ambition by Ian Warrell( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Turner was only 20 in 1795 when he first visited Salisbury. This book focuses on the important commissions that resulted from his contact with the region, which provided the foundations for his success. Reunited here are his inventive watercolours of Salisbury Cathedral painted for Sir Richard Colt Hoare, widely dispersed since 1883. Turner's matchless ability to depict architecture also attracted the attention of the eccentric art lover and writer, William Beckford. The problematic construction of Beckford's legendary but short-lived neo-gothic abbey at Fonthill was uniquely recorded in Turner's sketches and watercolours. As his career developed, Turner repeatedly revisited an area that captivated him. His depictions of Stonehenge, in particular, proved to be among his most hauntingly atmospheric works. In this beautifully illustrated book many rarely seen works are brought together, illuminating this formative and fascinating period in Turner's output."--Front flap of cover
Turner et la couleur by J. M. W Turner( Book )

7 editions published in 2016 in French and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851) règne sans conteste sur le paysage de la peinture anglaise du XIXe siècle. Ses paysages aux tonalités vibrantes et ses visions éblouissantes des phénomènes atmosphériques ont fait de lui le peintre de la couleur par excellence. Essence même de l'oeuvre de Turner. la couleur est aussi le fil conducteur de cet ouvrage, publié à l'occasion de l'exposition Turner et la couleur à l'Hôtel de Caumont Centre d'Art. Plus de cent peintures et aquarelles de Turner, couvrant l'ensemble de sa carrière, y sont richement illustrées, regroupées dans des sections thématiques et présentées par des conservateurs et des chercheurs spécialistes de l'oeuvre de l'artiste. Des tons délicats qui teintent les croquis de voyage de l'artiste aux tonalités puissantes qui envahissent les toiles les plus célèbres de sa maturité, "Turner et la couleur" est l'occasion de redécouvrir l'oeuvre de ce coloriste prodigieux, dont Claude Monet aurait dit qu'il savait peindre les yeux ouverts"."--Page 4 of cover
