Thomas Girtin (1775-1802) was one of Britain's greatest landscape painters. In a tragically short career, he developed a technique that revolutionized watercolor painting and produced powerful works, providing one of the cornerstones of Romantic landscape imagery. His talent was such that his friend J.M.W. Turner acknowledged: "If Tom Girtin had lived, I should have starved."Published to accompany the first comprehensive overview of Girtin's career for 25 years, this book brings together the most outstanding examples of his work in stunning colorplates. It offers a revaluation of his achievements and a wide-ranging analysis of his working methods and materials, as well as of his relations with patrons, the print trade, and fellow professional artists. This book will restore the reputation of this astonishing painter.
