Turner is unarguably one of Britain's most famous and innovative artists. From his student days he toured through England and Wales, making numerous topographical watercolour sketches and oils. After his first visit to the Alps in 1802, he began to combine narrative with the effects of sublime and violent nature, as seen in his Snow Storm: Hannibal and His Army Crossing the Alps (1812). Later landscapes such as The Fighting Temeraire (1838) were remarkable for their dazzling effects of light and colour.
