The 'Skies' Sketchbook - hardcover
J.M.W. Turner drew and painted skies all his life. As a boy he liked to lie on his back to capture the clouds and weather, and in later life he made many studies of the Kent coastline in South East England, which he believed had the most beautiful skies in Europe. This faithful reproduction of Turner's private sketchbook illustrates his exceptional attention to colour and light, but also reflects his friendships, activities and interests- and his endless fascination with the world above.
