Of all the Old Masters, the artist that J.M.W Turner admired most deeply was undoubtedly Claude Lorrain. The work of the seventeenth-century artist was a vital influence at the heart of Turner's artistic practice, and remained a profound stimulus from his formative years until the end of his working life. No other artist of Turner's generation strove so consistently to examine the earlier landscape painter's achievement and legacy.
