Turner and Venice

£24.99

Product description

One of the world's most beautiful cities is pictured here through the eyes of one of the world's best-loved artists. J.M.W. Turner's translucent, atmospheric paintings and watercolours of Venice have long been celebrated as among the most extraordinary creations of this popular artist's later career. Few other artists have responded with such imaginative inventiveness to the magical combination of water, light, and architecture that is Venice.
The texts include contributions by travel writer Jan Morris and historian David Laven, who bring their perspective to the city as it was when visited by Britain's greatest painter.

Turner's paintings and watercolours of Venice have long been celebrated as some of the most extraordinary creations of his later career. Few other great artists have responded with such inventiveness to the conjunctions of water, light and architecture unique to Venice. This book accompanies the major international exhibition, staged at Tate Britain, Autumn 2003.

Hardback with dust jacket. The dust jacket has faded slightly and has a little wear on the edges. The book itself is in excellent condition.
