' Encyclopaedic ... a lavish publication.'  - Apollo

'A major analysis of the work of both Turner himself and of maritime art in the 18th and 19th centuries ... this cannot be bettered.' - The Artist

A beautifully illustrated book bringing together many of J.M.W Turner’s seascapes

Published to coincide with a major touring exhibition organised by the Royal Museums Greenwich, Turner and the Sea is the first study to explore 
Turner’s lifelong preoccupation with the sea. The book reveals the full extent of the artist’s engagement with the sea and includes his most important works, such as The Wreck of a Transport Ship, The Battle of Trafalgar, and The Fighting 'Temeraire'. In addition, it examines the artist’s competitive response to the work of his contemporaries, including John Constable and explores the legacy of his seascapes through the maritime subjects of later British, European, and American artists.

Highly recommended for all devotees of Turner.
