9781489086891: Turner's Paintbox

Gerard Moyne is a Sydney-based art consultant with a passion for the genius of Turner. He has a particular way of looking at things – discerning, sometimes a little callous, always out of the ordinary. When he meets Julia he falls blindly in love with her, unable to see her as she is. Shadowing their affair is the story of J.M.W. Turner. Known as the Painter of Light, he captured that element within his canvas, as Gerard is captured within the force field of Julia. Her exuberant spontaneity is the opposite of his ordered control, their attraction as mysterious as the workings of art. When it all comes horribly undone, Gerard's perception of life changes profoundly.

From AudioFile:

The fictional narrator of this Australian novel, Gerard Moyne, is a cold intellectual who, though an expert on art history, has none of the warm emotions that all fields of art require. Therefore, Humphrey Bower faces a dilemma when narrating--how to get the listener to relate to an essentially unlikable character. Bower maneuvers accents--Australian and English--with far more skill than the author interweaves the colors of Turner's paintings. Whereas the author's Turner descriptions lack authority, Bower fine-tunes the story's narration in a graceful flow. Luckily, Moyne has the possibility of discovering his emotional depths through his romance with the sensual and spontaneous Julia. Further, this is a story of the failure to understand creativity, and that makes it a worthwhile listen. B.H.B. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
