Love landscapes? Well, Joseph Mallord William Turner has to be one of the greats. A leading English Romantic painter, he was known as the ‘Painter of Light’ thanks to his genius use of colour and his softly illuminated landscapes.
Painting in both watercolours and oils, Joseph Mallord William Turner created spectacular scenes that were surprisingly controversial in his day. His paintings have been exhibited everywhere from the Louvre to the Tate, but you can now bring the beauty of the English countryside into your home with our collection of Turner paintings. Whether you love peaceful coastal scenes, beautiful sunsets or stormy skies, these works of art are truly landscape masterpieces…
The beauty of Joseph Mallord William Turner paintings is their soft colours and subtle style. This makes them extremely versatile, looking equally at home in your kitchen, living room, bathroom or bedroom. We love the idea of complementing your choice of picture with your colour scheme. For example, pretty beach scenes like ’Weymouth’ would look fantastic in the bathroom decorated with pale blues and creams, while the gorgeous pinks of ’Sunset’ would work really well hung on a dove grey wall. Not all of Joseph Mallord William Turner’s pieces use soft pastel colours – you’ll also find some vibrant colours, such as the intense oranges in ’Venice, seen by Fusina‘.
While Joseph Mallord William Turner clearly loved the beauty of nature, his paintings also celebrate the industrial revolution that was underway during his lifetime. From steam trains to ships, he liked to capture the excitement of travel. ‘Rain, steam and speed’ has an exhilarating sense of motion, while ‘A windy day’ portrays the drama of the ships sailing the high seas.
