Great review. We saw the exhibit in July and I got the catalog.

Turner was a real innovator. But it was interesting to leaner that this was driven by his business concerns to stay different from his peers.

Paul A. Tamburello, Jr. aka pt at large

He was a competitor and innovator. When his peers began to emulate his style, he pushed himself to find new techniques to portray his experience of light, color, motion. His explorations kept him at the fore of landscape and marine artists during his lifetime. I read that he was eccentric, kept most of his paintings, lived as with his father for thirty years, had two mistresses who bore him children, and never allowed anyone to watch him as he painted. This in spite of the fact that he craved and prized his popularity during hi lifetime.

What a coincidence I am bound to get up there before 9/1 others have been just raving about it in the past few days !!!
