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.
