J.M.W. Turner was born in London in 1775 and is regarded as the most important English Romantic artist. Turner was able to depict nature at its most serene and most destructive. He captured the turbulent and atmospheric moods of the sea and sky, both haunting and ephemeral, and became known as 'the painter of light'.
