And now a quick tour through his career. Turner was an experimentalist who tried different styles and changed his approach greatly over time. He was also, I think, inconsistent. He sometimes tried to convey things that are hard to see, like, the sea at night in a snowstorm, and the results are sometimes little more than mud. Some of his paintings have not held up well over time. But for those that are well preserved, these photographs are nothing like the real thing, and if you like him should should get to some museums and see originals. They glow.
Just finding all these images and putting them together made me happy.
