PDF J.M.W. Turner

Book description

Very interesting book - and hugely thorough. I wanted to read a bio on Turner after seeing the film 'Mr Turner' because although Timothy Spall's performance was brilliant - the film does not tell you very much at all about Turner which was very frustrating - especially as it was quite a long movie.... 10 Random Things that were not particularly well depicted in the film

1) Turner was incredibly successful in his own lifetime (alluded toadmittedly but not the scale of his success)
2) He never spoke ill of his fellow artists and often helped artists during Varnishing days
3) His letters to friends were very incoherent at times!
4) He wanted to leave most of his estate to help impoverished artists
5) His mother was insane and finally committed to Bedlam
6) Sarah Danby was his mistress and he effectively ignored his children by her (OK - Sarah Danby was in the film but their relationship was not well depicted)
7) Turner did not say the Sun is God on his death (He mentioned a few times that he would like to see the sun again which is a bit different)
8) He was very committed to the Royal Academy
9) He travelled extensively in Europe and UK and was very fit - walked for miles and was nipping up mountains at age 69
10) He worked incredibly hard and was a very shrewd businessman
