For almost his entire residency of Sandycombe Lodge, Turner would have been working on the print publication, Picturesque Views on the Southern Coast of England, his first major independent series of topographical views. This talk discussed the background and circumstances of the project, particularly focusing on the techniques and skill of Turner and his printmakers, as well as revealing the highs and lows of their professional collaborations.
