Joseph Mallord William Turner the 18th and 19th century British artist is world-famous for his romantic landscape and seascape oil paintings which are seen as an influence on the Impressionist painters; particularly Claude Monet, who is known to have studied Turner’s work. Turner became a famous and wealthy artist very young in life thus allowing him to experiment with styles and painting effects. He is famous for his use of light and the effect of sunlight. Turner was very much admired in his day and many members of the British aristocracy commissioned him to paint scenes from their estates, notably the 3rd Earl of Egremont at Petworth House in Sussex. Turner is known to have painted 550 oils, over 2,000 watercolors and 30,000 works on paper. The Tate Gallery in London holds the most comprehensive exhibition of Turner’s paintings, and his work is represented in most museums in the world and in private collections. In 2010 the J Paul Getty Museum paid $45 million for a Turner, the highest auction price for one of his paintings.
Turner’s most famous painting has to be The Fighting Temeraire 1839. Other notable Turner paintings are Death on a Pale Horse, Snow Storm 1843 and Peace Burial at Sea 1843.
