Romantic British painter, Joseph Mallard William Turner (1775-1851) was a modern thinker and artist who captured scenes of modernity and reflected the changing landscape of Britain. 

He became known as 'the painter of light', because of his increasing interest in brilliant colours as the main constituent in his landscapes and seascapes. His works include water colours, oils and engravings.
