The attribution of a painting to a particular artist can determine its artistic value and its monetary value as well. So when a group of scholars determine that a Rembrandt is not a Rembrandt, it can create quite a stir. This book evaluates that process with respect to a painting in the Frick collection: "The Polish Rider", that was originally determined to be by Rembrandt.

"Just the facts, ma'am, just the facts."

And that's what you get in this biography of J.M.W. Turner. For me, it was slow-going, arranged only loosely chronologically, with events crisis-crossing over the chapters. For instance, there is a one chapter devoted to a patron of Turner's and another to a detractor. There is a chapter on travels on the continent, with some trips described in previous or later chapters. If you are looking for a good narrative you won't find it here. However, scholars will enjoy this biography, as It is very well-researched with many notes, lists of paintings and quotes.

While I won't remember all the details of his life, I now understand Turner's genius in his art and something of his complex character. He was prone to vicious outbursts as well as unexpected generosity.

Fortunately, this biography served a purpose for me since I was looking for background on J.M.W. Turner in anticipation of viewing the Turner exhibit at the AGO In Toronto. It definitely enhanced my viewing experience there. I have yet to see the movie, Mr. Turner, but plan to do so.

The Outer Banks by Anthony Bailey
An area we've yet to visit but know we would love.
A guide to NC outer banks. Besides the political events among the locals there are tourists that get instructions on how to hangglide.
Sounds interesting as long as there is land under you...so much information about the Wright brothers history.
Living through Hurricane Gloria, I remember this one when it hit RI. Like the discussions about the sea turtles and why they are endangered and what the locals are doing about it.
Loved hearing about the wild ponies=have seen them pictured in movies...
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).
