J. M. W. Turner - paintings 1800-1809

These early lessons in topography stayed with Turner throughout his life. His first exhibited paintings were carefully delineated watercolors of recognizable English monuments and landscapes. Although Turner would later develop an extensive visual vocabulary that ranged far beyond precise renderings, first-hand observations remained crucial to his working method. Over the course of five decades, he filled hundreds of sketchbooks with visual records of scores of tours through England, Scotland, and Wales, and around the Continent to Belgium, France, Holland, Italy, the Rhineland, Switzerland, and elsewhere.
