Andrea FredericksenISBN: 1854375687;
Book DescriptionOver a period of 30 years, J.M.W. Turner taught perspective to the students of the Royal Academy in London. To aid him in his lectures he produced a portfolio of striking diagrams in red and black watercolor on paper, demonstrating various artistic and critical theories on perspective. A selection of these extraordinary works, long held in the Turner archives at Tate and catalogued by John Ruskin, is published here for the first time, accompanied by an incisive and accessible essay by Turner scholar Andrea Fredericksen. AUTHOR BIO: Andrea Fredericksen has recently finished cataloguing J.M.W. Turner's perspective drawings in Tate's Turner Bequest.
