The Man Who Set Painting on Fire

In 1802, at the age of 26, Joseph Mallord William Turner became the youngest ever member of the Royal Academy. His early paintings combined great historical themes with inspired visions of nature, but his subsequent experimentation with capturing the effects of light led him swiftly towards a revolutionary dissolution of forms.

In this profusely illustrated book, Olivier Meslay invites us to follow the development of Turner's incandescent art, a bridge between Romanticism and Impressionism and one of Britain's most remarkable contributions to art history.
