Excerpt from The Engraved Work of J. M. W. Turner, R. A, Vol. 1: Line Engravings on Copper, 1794 1839
Turner was born in 1775, at which time William Woollett stood at the head of all landscape engravers. His fine interpretations of the pictures of Claude, Poussin, and Wilson had gained him a high reputation, not only in England, but throughout the Continent. He died in 1785, but his inﬂuence dominated the English school of engraving at the end of the eighteenth and the beginning of the nineteenth century. His work was always strong and masterly, although it has not the delicacy nor especi ally the luminousness of the men who were to succeed him.
