Turner's Later Papers
Study of the Manufacture, Selection and Use of His Drawing Papers 1820-1851
Author Peter Bower
This book charts the constantly developing relationship between Turner's often very imaginative and innovative techniques and the grounds he worked on. It documents his complex responses to the rapid changes and increasing sophistication of the design and production of papers for artists.
Whether for a speedy pencil sketch or a highly finished watercolour, the paper Turner used is always an integral part of the work. His intimate understanding of the interplay of surface and the marks made upon it is a crucial part of the visual effect.
