Joseph Mallord William Turner RA, 1775 1851, was an English Romantic landscape painter, water-colourist and print-maker. Turner was considered a controversial figure in his day, but is now regarded as the artist who elevated landscape painting to an eminence rivaling history painting. Although renowned for his oil paintings, Turner is also one of the greatest masters of British water-colour landscape painting. Thomas Stothard, 1755 1834, was an English painter and engraver. In 1778 he became a student of the Royal Academy, of which he was elected associate in 1792 and full academician in 1794. In 1812 he was appointed librarian, having served as assistant for two years.
