J. M. W. Turner neglected and even shattered the accurate portrayal of details and motionless situations that preceding generations’ masters and contemporaries still attempted in pursuit of larger subjective effects.Many of William Turner’s paintings highlighted the force of nature in ways that had not hitherto been shown.
Turner was transferred to Margate in 1786, where he attended school and began painting the village and its environment. Throughout his career, he would depict the village and its surroundings and then use those sketches to produce finished works.
The bulk of William Turner’s paintings are now housed in the Tate Britain, with the National Gallery owning a few of noteworthy works. Turner’s effect on artists has been felt for more than two hundred years.
