Up until a few years ago, biographies of both JMW Turner and John Ruskin had claimed that, in 1858, Ruskin burned bundles of erotic paintings and drawings by Turner in a fit of embarsassed Victorian censorship, to protect Turner's posthumous reputation. This title examines this little known aspect of the artist's oeuvre. In his original essay, fully reproduced here, Warrell places the work within the context of Turner's social and artistic milieu, contemporary preoccupations with art for public and 'private' consumption, and the details and intricacies of Turner's life and output. An essential addition to the canon of work on Britain's most prolific and adored artist, this beautifully produced volume will be of interest to scholars, connoisseurs, and all Turner devotees.
