Joseph Mallord William Turner, 1775-1851, was an English landscape painter of oils and watercolours. An English painter that made a living with his excellent watercolor landscapes, William Turner had a lot in common with J.M.W. Turner. His nickname became William Turner of Oxford due to the many paintings he did of the countryside around Oxford. One of the big time Turner works of his career was Oxford from Hinksey Hill, which was done in 1840 and remains in a private collection. Turner’s fascination with Oxford also led to him eventually settling down on 16 St Johm Street in central Oxford. The calm and peaceful Turner artworks remain some of the best available, with a style that is easy on the eyes.
