"Turner in Indianapolis" is an authoritative catalog of ninety-nine paintings and drawings by J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851) and his contemporaries collected by Kurt F. Pantzer, now in the collection of the Indianapolis Museum of Art. Martin F. Krause's carefully researched text provides thorough documentation of each work, based upon current scholarship, pertinent historical records, and eye-witness testimony. The catalog also serves as a chronicle of Turner's life and times. It begins with his first exhibition piece, View of the Archbishop's Palace, Lambeth, shown at the Royal Academy when he was 14 years old, and concludes with his last certifiable watercolor, Oberhofen, Lake Thun, painted in his 73rd year. In between, readers can follow Turner on his annual tours throughout Great Britain and across Europe in search of ever-grander landscapes. The catalog also features watercolors and drawings by Turner's colleagues and competitors, including John Robert Cozens, Thomas Girtin, Thomas Hearne, Samuel Prout, Samuel Palmer, Clarkson Stanfield, David Roberts, and John Ruskin and his corps of turner copyists. All works are reproduced in color.
