Widely regarded as one of the greatest figures in the history of art, J.M.W. Turner (17751851) had a profound influence on the development of Impressionism. What is less known is that his influence spread far beyond Europe, and provided a foundational model for American artists challenged with tackling the vast panoramas of the New World. J.M.W. Turner, accompanying the largest exhibition of his work ever presented in the US, shows how Turners revolutionary depictions of light, color and atmospherics in the landscapecombined with his understanding of the sublime in naturemade him among the most acclaimed and keenly studied European artists in the New World. Landscape painting was seen as the art form most closely allied to the identity of the newly independent nation, and Turners majestic works served as a model for a new generation of American painters.
