Items related to Charles Turner

Charles Turner was a mezzotint engraver of portraits, sporting, military, decorative and animal subjects. He also produced topographical views after his contemporaries and the old masters, and created his own designs. In 1789 he was apprenticed to the engraver John Jones (about 1740 - ?1797) and later studied at the Royal Academy.

Turner began publishing his prints in 1796 and worked for a variety of publishers in London and Scotland. He was hard working, reliable and worked quickly and was able to adapt his style to suit the painter.

From 1806 Charles Turner engraved many of the early plates of Joseph Mallord William Turner’s (1775 - 1851) 'Liber Studiorum'. Throughout his career, much of his work was exhibited at the Royal Academy, where he was elected Associate Engraver in 1828. He continued to exhibit prints there until 1843. His body of work is among the largest of any English engraver.
