Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851)

The work imprinted with luminous effects by English painter and watercolorist, Joseph Mallord William Turner, influenced the Impressionistic painters of the 19th century.

Born in London in 1775 into a modest family, Turner entered the Royal Academy of Arts at the age of 14 where he studied, among other things, watercolors. He presented his first oil canvas, Fishermen at Sea, at the Royal Academy in 1796, and exhibited there afterward almost every year up to his death.

His travels throughout the United Kingdom and Europe confronted him with not only different landscapes, but new lighting which was to mark his works. He was literally fascinated by light and especially interested in landscapes and seascapes. At his death, he left behind some 19,000 watercolors and drawings, as well as nearly 300 paintings.
