Turner: The Extraordinary Life and Momentous Times of J. M. W. Turner


Considered one of Britain's most admired and famous landscape painters, there is little known about the life of artist J. M. W. Turner, he is often thought of as a 'misunderstood genius'.

An insightful look at the man behind his artistic achievements, Franny Moyle tells his story from the tragic committal of his mother to a lunatic asylum, to the personal sacrifices he made for his work and the double life he chose to live in the last years of his life.

Set against the backdrop of stately homes in Britain and the French and Industrial revolution, this book is a captivating portrait of one of the most important figures in Western art.
