Vues Pittoresques de Luxembourg par J.M. William Turner. Dessins et aquarelles par J.M. William Turner.
Hardcover, 4to oblong, approx. 200 pp., n° 1664/2900. Texts in English, French and German. Turner (1775-1851) stayed in Luxembourg in 1825 and in 1834 (although not certain). This period is important in the work of Turner because he experimented with light and color, almost in an impressionist manner, the transparency of watercolors suggesting the delicacy of the light. Sketches from the British Museum Collection, aquarelles from the BMC and Tate.
