JM Turner's Birds in water colour

  1. 1. Robin Redbreast 14 x 17.7cm
  2. 2. Joseph William Mallard Turner was one of the worlds most influential artists, especially among artists. Although his work is well documented it is hard to find examples beyond a narrow range of his more famous works. He was somewhat proliferate I came across these exquisite water colours, which go beyond that of scientific recording, in a discarded library book. These works are from Turner's book of Birds done whilst staying at Farnley Hall. I believe the originals can be viewed at Leeds City Art Gallery. I have made these available for educational use only.
