Product description

Turner Watercolours
David Blayney Brown
On the occasion of the exhibition Hockney on Turner Watercolours, Tate Britain, 12 June 2007 – 3 February 2008.
Tate Publishing, 2007.
Soft-bound; 265 x 230 mm; 128 pages. No dust jacket. Profusely illustrated and printed on good quality paper.
The book is in very good condition. The binding is sound with no creasing of the spine. Minimal bumping to the covers. Very slight crease across bottom corner of back cover.
J M W Turner's lifetime (1775-1851) was also the classic age of the English watercolour, and his mastery and perfection of the medium coincided with its establishment as an independent art form. He rarely left his home without a sketchbook, pencils, and a small travelling case of watercolours. He exploited as no one before him the medium's luminosity and transparency, conjuring light effects on English meadows and Venetian lagoons and gauzy mists over mountains and lakes.
In an extensive and illuminating introduction, internationally acclaimed Turner expert David Blayney Brown provides a context to the watercolours and a background to the Tate's unrivalled collection of Turner's work.
