Although the copyright is several years old, US distribution began in 1992. This collaborative effort of the British National Trust and the Tate Gallery celebrates the world-famous collection of paintings by Turner at Petworth, his association with that house, and the patronage of the third Earl of Egremont. The 20 oil paintings housed there are reproduced together with Turner's paintings of or related to Petworth that hang elsewhere. A special feature is the facsimile reproduction of the complete set of 135 gouache drawings on blue paper, remarkable for their spontaneous feel, made by Turner at Petworth during the summer of 1827. Several essays introduce the visual content. 10.5x9.5" Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
