Joseph Mallord William Turner is perhaps one of the best-loved English Romantic artists. He was an original artist, creating beautiful landscapes and seascapes and because of this, Joseph Turner became known as 'the painter of light'. Joseph Turner chose to work with brilliant colours as the main constituent in his art prints.
Joseph Turner started studying at the schools of the Royal Academy at the age of 14, and exhibited at the Academy nearly every year for the rest of his life. Joseph Turner’s artwork includes water colours, oils and engravings. This amazing artist invented new techniques to make skies and clouds look luminous and his pictures were so different from what other artists were doing – it’s no wonder he remains so popular even today.
