Summary

Summary

A second edition of the 1993 Tate Gallery exhibition catalogue serving as an aesthetic journey through Turner's work as well as a detailed analysis of the artist's painting techniques. Using scientific analyses of Turner's oils and watercolors and research into his writings, Townsend (Senior Conservation Scientist, Tate Gallery) presents an interesting survey of Turner's experimentation with innovative colored pigments and paint formulations. Because of these experiments, many of his paintings have darkened with time. Their study sheds light on the problems of conservation as well as the sometimes mislabeled criticisms of Turner's work. Includes color photographs. Distributed by University of Washington Press. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
