↳ William Turner (British, 1775-1851)

"Turner’s true master was Dr Monro; to the practical teaching of that first patron and the wise simplicity of method of watercolour study, in which he was disciplined by him and companioned by Giston, the healthy and constant development of the greater power is primarily to be attributed; the greatness of the power itself, it is impossible to over-estimate." (x)

- John Ruskin, 1878

Iceland Poppies now hangs in the Garden Room at Charleston, its original home, alongside Sickert and Matisse.
So elegantly refined.
