Back in print after a decade, this book, which A. S. Byatt called "a pleasure to read," explores the life of J. M. W. Turner (1775-1851), Britain's most mysterious painter, whose range of work encompasses seascapes and landscapes, executed in both immensely powerful oil paintings and intimate watercolors. Anthony Bailey crafts what the Guardian called a "very fine portrait" of Turner, the short and stout son of a Covent Garden barber, who achieved fame and fortune during his lifetime and whose works remain enormously popular and influential today. Bailey "writes with flair and imagination" ( Sunday Times), using archival material, scholarly literature and research, and many of Turner's sketchbooks, paintings, and watercolors to shed new light on this complicated and secretive artistic figure.
