Jmw Turner At The Harbor Of Honfleur
series: Landscapes Through Time With David Dunlop
air date: 3/12/14 5:30 AM
David visits the dramatic Northern French Coast of Normandy at the harbor of Honfleur with its distinctive skyline - a favorite location of Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851). Acknowledged as one of history's greatest landscape watercolorist, Turner deftly transfers his innovative watercolor techniques to his oil painting. David explores this remarkable series of innovations while considering Turner's techniques and composition, borrowed from the atmospheric perspective and freely interpreted landscapes of 17th century French landscape master Claude Lorrain.
