One of the greatest landscape painters of all time, Joseph Mallord William Turner rendered the subtle effects of light and atmosphere in revolutionary ways.
This documentary chronicles the rise of Turner, a barber's son who entered the Royal Academy art school at age fourteen to become, over the course of six decades, Britain's most renowned painter.
It includes footage of locations important to Turner in Wales, England, and Switzerland, and readings from writers and artists of the era, including John Ruskin and Lord Byron.
DVD bonus materials include a gallery of Turner's paintings set to music, a photo gallery from the film shoot, and a biography of the artist.
Directed by Carroll Moore. Narrated by Jeremy Irons.
