Turner was a painter whose treatment of light put him squarely in the pantheon of the worlds preeminent artists, but his character was a tangle of fascinating contradictions. While he could be coarse and rude, manipulative, ill-mannered, and inarticulate, he was also generous, questioning, and humane, and he displayed through his work a hitherto unrecognized optimism about the course of human progress.

J.M.W. Turner was a painter whose treatment of light put him squarely in the pantheon of the world’s preeminent artists, but his character was a tangle of fascinating contradictions. While he could be coarse and rude, manipulative, ill-mannered, and inarticulate, he was also generous, questioning, and humane, and he displayed through his work a hitherto unrecognized optimism about the course of human progress. With two illegitimate daughters and several mistresses whom Turner made a career of not including in his public life, the painter was also known for his entrepreneurial cunning, demanding and receiving the highest prices for his work.Over the course of sixty years, Turner traveled thousands of miles to seek out the landscapes of England and Europe. He was drawn overwhelmingly to coasts, to the electrifying rub of the land with the sea, and he regularly observed their union from the cliff, the beach, the pier, or from a small boat. Fueled by his prodigious talent, Turner revealed to himself and others the personality of the British and European landscapes and the moods of the surrounding seas. He kept no diary, but his many sketchbooks are intensely autobiographical, giving clues to his techniques, his itineraries, his income and expenditures, and his struggle to master the theories of perspective.In Turner, James Hamilton takes advantage of new material discovered since the 1975 bicentennial celebration of the artist’s birth, paying particular attention to the diary of sketches with which Turner narrated his life.

This book about Joseph M. William Turner is a very detailed account of his life with excellent descriptions of his paintings. The research is solid. The author presents the whole man --- a fully fleshed out consideration of his life, from youth to old age. If you are looking for many reproductions of Turner's paintings and engravings, this isn't the book for you. There are only a few pages of his art work --- a small representation of Turner's enormous body of work. But when you finish the book, you will have a clear impression of his thinking, his relationship with others, what motivated him and how he planned and strategized to put forward his art. In addition, many noted artists of his time are discussed. The book even includes the Turner Family Tree and three maps of the greater London area and the places he traveled to in search of foreign painting views.

Not the easiest book to read, more like a term paper but it answered a lot of questions that the movie didn't...

I would expect a $12 kindle book to:
a. Have a cover with a picture as advertised and not a generic blue freebie looking cover.
B. Be able to read the family history chart and the maps in the beginning of the book. They are so pixelated
they are useless. I deleted the book and re-downloaded the book, it did not help.
Now I will begin reading the book.
