Detailed description

Picture "Calais Beach" (1830), framed

French poissardes collecting bait at low water. Turner devotes himself here entirely to the depiction of clouds and light. The glazed colours and the sketchily depicted figures make the picture seem wonderfully light - despite the strenuous work of the fisherwomen. The beach, the sea and the sky become one surface. The emotions of the romantic painter are palpable from the condensing colour tones. Turner has arrived at the purely painterly.
Original: Oil on canvas, Bury Art Gallery and Museum, Lancashire.

Fine Art Giclée on cotton canvas, mounted on a wooden stretcher frame. Limited edition 499 copies, with certificate. In handmade golden studio frame. Size 54 x 80 cm (h/w).

Portrait of the artist William Turner

About William Turner


English oil and watercolour painter. He mainly painted landscapes, history paintings and seascapes.

Already at a young age, William Turner achieved the highest technical perfection and was appointed to the Royal Academy as one of Britain's most important artists; nine years later he was one of its members.

Experiments with new techniques and an intensive study of Goethe's theory of colour, together with extensive travels, sparked an important change in Turner's style. He courageously abandoned the established rules of pictorial tradition and Object Realism and devoted himself intensively to the effects of light and movement.

Turner earned much criticism for his completely new type of painting. But his precise observation of nature and the flowing light in the paintings of the great Romantic paved the way for the Impressionists and the development of modern painting.

The majority of his works are exhibited in the Tate Gallery in London.
