28 x 35.6 cm art print featuring Loch Coruisk, Skye by Joseph Mallord William Turner from the National Galleries of Scotland collection. This print comes delivered rolled in a cardboard tube.
Turner travelled to the Isle of Skye in 1831. His destination was the remote Loch Coruisk, tucked within the jagged peaks of the Black Cuillin. Turner creates a charged, ominous atmosphere, as two whirlpools of cloud loom over the mountains. The minute figures in the foreground suggest human frailty against the awesome power of nature.
Joseph Mallord William Turner (23 April 1775 – 19 December 1851) was an English Romantic painter, printmaker and watercolourist. Turner's detailed, expansive and atmospheric artwork celebrates the diversity and emotive power of nature and transformed the art of landscape painting in Britain. He was born in Covent Garden, the son of a barber, and exhibited his earliest sketches in his father's shop before studying at the Royal Academy Schools. Turner then became the youngest ever full member of the Royal Academy in 1802.
