Turner & the Sea
A beautifully produced book showcasing Turner’s depictions of the sea, published to coincide with a major exhibition at the National Maritime Museum, explores and celebrates Turners lifelong fascination with the sea. It also sets his work within the context of marine painting in the 19th century.
The majority of the works illustrated here — paintings, watercolors, sketches, sketchbooks, and engravings — are by Turner, but there are also comparative works by some forty other artists including Winslow Homer, James McNeill Whistler, John Constable, Benjamin West, and Gustave Courbet. The book is organized thematically and chronologically, and the subjects range from “Contested Waters,” which examines what was at stake for marine painting during the Napoleonic Wars, to “New Wave,” an exploration of Turner’s international and often surprising legacy for the art of the sea.
This book places Turner and his work firmly in the broader field of maritime painting that flourished in nineteenth-century Britain, France, Germany, Holland, and America. Each chapter has an introductory text followed by discussion of specific paintings. Four of the chapters conclude with a feature essay on a specific topic.
