In this episode:

The Harbor of Honfleur, Normandy Coast, France

 


David believes that Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851) is the greatest of English landscape painters perhaps, even, of all time. Abstract expressionists, Impressionists, Hudson River Painters, Tonalists, and others all cite Turner as a source of influence and inspiration. David examines why. In this episode, David visits the dramatic Northern French coast at the harbor of Honfleur, a favorite location of Turner's and of French artists, an inspiration for his watercolor and oil paintings. He recreates Turner's innovative techniques in composition and paint.
