How can a modern painter go about learning the techniques and methods of a longdead master? Drawing on years of research and practice, this book shows you how.Tony Smibert brings us a virtual ‘apprenticeship’, sharing a method and approach of his own that emulates Turner and yet is contemporary, original and innovative. Smibert isknown for watercolours inspired by Turner and the golden age of British watercolour (1750–1850). His method of painting in Turner’s style, informed by a fifty-year journeyinto non-Western painting cultures, ingeniously draws together ideas and principles from East and West to bring out an entirely new perspective on Turner’s practice.

A working manual for artists, the book brings together elements of practice from historic masters including Leonardo, Claude Lorraine and Monet as well as Turner. This is a book for anyone aspiring to learn from any master, explaining the practice and philosophy of traditional apprenticeship from the point of view of diverse models. Even to those who may never paint, Turner’s Apprentice offers a tantalizing glimpse ofthe thrill of painting and learning, and an inspiring tool for art appreciation.

Tony Smibert is visiting artist researcher at Tate Britain, where he explores and demonstrates Turner’stechnique. As an artist, he has had over fifty solo exhibitions around the world. His books include TateWatercolour Manual: Lessons from the Great Masters.
