An interview with Franny Moyle, Author of Turner, the Extraordinary Life and Momentous Times of JMW Turner. I picked up Franny’s biography on Turner earlier this year and thoroughly enjoyed learning more about this important artist’s life. Turner is one of the United Kingdom’s greatest artists, and is, perhaps its best known, but I didn’t know much about his life. I found Franny’s biography fascinating and enlightening. Franny Moyle joins me for the interview from her home in England.

A View of the Archbishop’s Palace, Lambeth – this watercolour was Turner’s first to be accepted for the Royal Academy’s annual exhibition in April 1790, the month he turned 15. The image is a technical presentation of Turner’s strong grasp of the elements of perspective with several buildings at sharp angles to each other, demonstrating Turner’s thorough mastery of Thomas Malton’s topographical style.
