： (JMW Turner, Printmaking, Landscape Painters)
JMW Turner (1775-1851) was one of the most significant British painters of the nineteenth century, and his influence on British painting was extended and profound. This exhibition seeks to examine this influence by focusing on those artists to whom Turner offered a distinctly creative example. The fact that Turner’s influence was so pervasive is due to his forays into printmaking, which made his work available to a wide audience at relatively little cost. Between 1806 and 1819, he published a series of seventy-one prints in fourteen installments, which he called the Liber Studiorum. The art critic, John Ruskin, saw it as Turner’s greatest achievement and maintained that to study it should be a requirement of every aspiring artist. This exhibition takes Turner’s set of prints as a starting point and seeks to explore its possible influences on some of those painters who tried to emulate Turner’s approach. These artists are predominantly landscape painters: some are well-known such as John Linnell, Thomas Creswick and Clarkson Stanfield; others such as James Baker Pyne, James Webb and Richard Ansdell are less so. The work of two Pre-Raphaelite landscape painters, Daniel Alexander Williamson and William James Blacklock, is also included.
