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.

I love his fascination with light. It just draws you in. Even in his angry waters the light is calming.
I have commented before on Turners work, however, I find fascinating to here about the differences in how artists traveled to find inspiration for their work. I am in awe of how Turner went through the Alps in a ti.e when it wasn’t easy to travel. I was also inspired by his sketches of Venice before the other masters.
It was very helpful to learn about the Royal Academy of Art Exposition. I knew that artist had patrons but had no idea about the big show or how they would find new patrons and the lack of galleries.
This podcast was really full of wonderful art history and I am so happy that you shared the information.
