The Little Turner The Painter of Light's Travel Journal by Catherine du Duve


The Little Turner The Painter of Light's Travel Journal by Catherine du Duve

Have fun whilst finding out about Turner's life and work. At the end of the 18th century, London was thriving. Along the Thames factories belched smoke. Turner saw the first appearance of steam locomotives. Steamboats soon replaced sailing boats. The painter was fascinated by progress and the forces of nature: storms, fires and avalanches - Turner was an adventurer! He travelled Europe by stagecoach and discovered the works of the great masters. For over 60 years, risking his life, he sketched in his travel journal the many landscapes he crossed. Discover the life and work of the Painter of Light and the revolutionary times he lived in.
