    1. An in-depth look at the Turner's life and works. The author draws on numerous observations from Turner's peers and contemporaries which gives a rounded perspective on who Turner was, both the man and the artist. I found these glimpses into his personality fascinating. He could run hot and cold, as the saying goes, being very social and generous at times and then extremely aloof and gruff at others. He was shrewd with his money, and tight-fisted in many social situations, but then could be very g [...]

    2. I have, of late, been going in for Turner, somewhat: between seeing Mike Leigh's "Mr.Turner" (which I heard him talking about making over ten years ago at the San Francisco Film Festival), seeing the amazing exhibit of Turner's later works (twice) at the De Young, purchasing the DVD of "Mr. Turner", and viewing the five watercolors on display at the Legion of Honor, it's been quite an immersion. And now this exhaustive biography.While there can be no doubt that J.M.W. Turner was a rather rum cov [...]

    3. "Just the facts, ma'am, just the facts." And that's what you get in this biography of J.M.W. Turner. For me, it was slow-going, arranged only loosely chronologically, with events crisis-crossing over the chapters. For instance, there is a one chapter devoted to a patron of Turner's and another to a detractor. There is a chapter on travels on the continent, with some trips described in previous or later chapters. If you are looking for a good narrative you won't find it here. However, scholars wi [...]

    4. Very interesting book - and hugely thorough. I wanted to read a bio on Turner after seeing the film 'Mr Turner' because although Timothy Spall's performance was brilliant - the film does not tell you very much at all about Turner which was very frustrating - especially as it was quite a long movie. 10 Random Things that were not particularly well depicted in the film 1) Turner was incredibly successful in his own lifetime (alluded to admittedly but not the scale of his success)2) He never spoke [...]

    5. Very detailed and interesting biography. Turner was definitely ahead of his time with painting and was a unique individual. I wonder if he were alive today if he would be diagnosed as having Aspergers. The recent movie on Turner is what inspired me to read the book. The acting is wonderful and after having read the book I recognize what an accurate job the movie does of portraying the man and his adult life. Now if I could only get to the UK to see his paintings!

    6. A well-written biography of J.M.W. Turner which gets into his character and his painting styles. I wish there were more illustrations, of course, but many were available on the internet, i.e. Dido Building Carthage, which is mentioned several times.
