Beschreibung

"Joseph Mallord William Turner was one of the greatest artists of the nineteenth century. The son of a Covent Garden barber, he rose rapidly to fame in the art world and then dominated it for over forty years. His oil paintings, watercolours and sketchesfrequently reflect the era, a time of rapid social change affected by political upheaval, war and industrial revolution. Yet despite an enduring reputation as a visionary painter Turner has remained in many ways a mysterious figure. A secretive man, he was also full of contradictions: reclusive yet gregarious, private yet boastful, tough yet sensitive. He was also a long-term bachelor who clandestinely fathered two daughters. Much has been written about Turner's life, and many exuberant anecdotes passed down. The challenge, as Anthony Bailey discovered during his investigations, is to distinguish plain fact from elaborate fabrication. As well as unearthing fresh material and reappraising existing information, he has looked at many of Turner's paintings and sketches at first hand, but this has always been with the aim of reassessing the man rather than the works." -- Back cover.

Anthony Bailey is an author and has written for The New Yorker. His books include a biographical study of another great painter, Rembrandt's House, the novel Major Andre and memoirs from America and England.
