TurnerStreaming Video - 2014
J. M. W. Turner was a visionary and a maverick, whose landscape paintings astounded and antagonized those that saw them. A member of the Royal Academy in London, Turner was fiercely attacked by critics for his radical approach to painting. Turner's paintings reflect his varying responses to the world around him, a world that was rapidly changing as the industrial revolution propelled society forward. In addition to nature scenes, Turner's paintings recall the ancient world, echoing neoclassical landscapes of the French painter Claude Lorrain. Works featured in this program include Fishermen at Sea, The Shipwreck, Snow Storm: Hannibal and His Army Crossing the Alps, Dido Building Carthage, Snow Storm - Steam-Boat off a Harbor's Mouth, and Rain, Steam and Speed - The Great Western Railway.
