Turner's Italy

Christopher Baker

Turner was fascinated by the experience of different countries and cultures across Europe, but it was Italy and its art and architecture that always held a special place in his affections. The richness and diversity of the country's climate, landscapes, cities and customs, are reflected in many of Turner's finest paintings, which range from unforgettable images of the splendour of Rome, to smouldering sunsets over the rooftops of Venice.

Published to accompany the major exhibition, Turner & Italy, this souvenir guide traces the artist's lasting engagement with Italy as a subject.
