Synopsis: Examines the life and work of the noted landscape painter and discusses his background and technique, including his training and working methods

From Library Journal: Turner's will left most of his works to the British nation with the condition that they be housed together; the recent opening of the Clore Turner Gallery in London fulfills part of this condition. Thus these two books offer timely insights into the artistic legacy of this great painter. Gage's monograph offers a fresh reappraisal of Turner's work in the context of its subject matter. An authority on Turner, Gage is in an excellent position to "reclaim" the artist's role as a Romantic painter, while advancing a "modernist approach" to understanding his influence on later artists. After thematically focused chapters about Turner as landscape painter, tourist, engraver, and interpreter of the old masters, he moves from observations about Turner's interactions with Royal Academy colleagues, and patrons, to the role of poetic imagination in his later works. Turner in the South scrutinizes the Italian tours of 1819 and 1828. Powell treats Turner's travel sketches, itinerary notes, and other original documents as elements in the evolution of various important paintings, e.g., "Bay of Baiae" and "The Golden Bough." She sees Turner as challenged by Italy, even into the 1930s, and inspired to create innovative imagery as part of his "dialogue with the art of the past." Gage's book offers the broadest appeal to readers and is an appropriate purchase for general and academic libraries. For specialized collections covering British art, both works are excellent scholarlyand visualadditions to the abundant literature on the artist. Paula A. Baxter, Musuem of Modern Art Lib., New York
