Review:

A major analysis of the work of both Turner himself and of maritime art in the 18th and 19th centuries ... this cannot be bettered. --The Artist

Encyclopaedic ... a lavish publication. --Apollo

A tour de force ... accessible and readable ... a beautiful record of Turner's achievements and his representation of the sea. --Yarns and Fabrics

An expectedly gorgeous book focusing on Turner's great passion, the sea, and the masterpieces inspired by it. --Irish Times
