William Turner: Painting "Beach of Calais" (1830) in studio framing

French poissards collecting bait at low tide. Turner devotes himself here to the representation of clouds and light. The scumbled colors and the sketchy representation of figures create a wonderfully light effect, despite the strenuous work of the fisherwomen. The beach, the sea and the sky become a single surface. From the condensing color shades, one can guess the emotions of the romantic painter. Turner got purely pictorial.

Original: Oil on canvas, Bury Art Gallery and Museum, Lancashire.

Fine art giclée on cotton canvas, stretched on a wooden stretcher frame. Limited edition of 499 exemplars, with certificate. In hand-made golden studio framing. Format 80 x 54 cm.

English oil and watercolour painter (1775-1851). He painted mainly landscapes, history paintings and seascapes.

From a young age William Turner reached the highest technical perfection and was considered one of the most important artists of Great Britain appointed to the Royal Academy, and nine years later he was one of their members.

Experimentation with new techniques and the intensive study of Goethe's colour theory solved together with extensive travels for Turner is an important change of style. Boldly he left the established rules of pictorial tradition and subject realism and devoted himself intensively to the effects of light and movement.

For its completely new painting Turner received much criticism. But his close observation of nature and the flowing light in the paintings of the great romantic paved the way for the Impressionists and for the development of modern painting.

Giclée = derived from the French verb gicler meaning "to squirt, spray".

Giclée method is a digital printing process. It is a high-resolution, large-format printout on an inkjet printer with special different coloured or pigment-based inks (usually six to twelve). The colours are light-fast, that is, resistant to harmful UV light. They have a high richness of nuance, contrast and saturation.

The Giclée process is suitable for real art canvas, handmade and watercolor paper and for silk.

The mental attitude which spilled over from literature and philosophy to visual arts, established in about 1800 but which failed to produce its own style in visual arts.

The art of Romanticism was determined by content, relevant attitude to life and the sensations triggered by it. Inwardness and feelings, imagination and dream, world and nature, the power of myth and striving into infinity became central themes. The specific area of Romantic art lies in the painting and drawing. The landscape, as a theme that is constanly turned to, always moves to the forefront: man and nature are in relationship with each other, reflect the moods. Besides a new nature feeling there was a renewal of the religious attitude and a return to the past, tradition, history, old legends, fairy tales, as well as to the art of old masters and epochs. Especially in the case of Germany these was strongly national-oriented art.

Main representatives in Germany include among others: C.D. Friedrich, P.O. Runge, J.A. Koch, M. v. Schwind, and also the Nazarene group of artists. French Romanticism, which was characterized by other trends than the German, is represented mainly by the art of Delacroix.

The Romantic period lasted until around 1830.
