Overview

One of the world's most beautiful cities is pictured here through the eyes of one of the world's best-loved artists. J.M.W. Turner's translucent, atmospheric paintings and watercolors of Venice have long been celebrated as among the most extraordinary creations of this popular artist's later career. Few other artists have responded with such imaginative inventiveness to the magical combination of water, light, and architecture that is Venice.This beautifully produced book, which accompanies a traveling exhibition that comes to the Kimbell Art Museum this spring, features the largest selection of Turner's paintings and watercolors of Venice ever published, some reproduced for the first time. The texts include contributions by travel writer Jan Morris and historian David Laven, who bring their perspective to the city as it was when visited by Britain's greatest painter. Author Bio: Ian Warrell is a curator at Tate and author of numerous books on Turner, including Turner at Petworth. David Laven of the University of Reading is the author of Venice Under the Hapsburgs. Jan Morris is a well-known travel writer and author of Venice. Cecilia Powell is the author of Italy in the Age of Turner.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This attractive, scholarly volume accompanies the first exhibition on Turner's Venetian pictures (shown at the Tate Britain and the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, TX). Turner scholar Warrell (Turner at Petworth), along with a few other contributing writers, examines Turner's Venetian oil paintings and watercolors in relation to the three trips that the artist took to Venice in 1819, 1833, and 1840. In response to his artistic productivity during this time, Turner sent pictures of Venice to the Royal Academy almost every year from 1833 to 1846, ultimately producing over 550 pages of pencil sketches. In 1838-42, he selected two of his Venetian paintings to be published as prints. Attesting to the popularity of these paintings, of the 11 Turner pictures sold at the Royal Academy between 1840 and 1844, seven were of Venice. One of the most interesting discoveries of this exhibition is that two unfinished works from the 1840s are actually of the English Channel and not of Venice, as previously thought. Recommended for all academic libraries that collect art books.-Sandra Rothenberg, Framingham State Coll. Lib., MA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
