Holy Island, Northumberland, engraved by W. Tombleson. From Picturesque Views in England and Wales.
Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775 – 1851) is probably the most celebrated English artist of all time. Both eccentric and prolific, the many J. M. W. Turner paintings and watercolors show a genius that was recognized even during his own lifetime. In his early career his style was Romantic, but he was highly experimental and later Turner paintings would be revolutionary in style and would influence and prefigure Impressionism.
