          Oil paint on mahogany 65.4 x 81.3 cm

          The full name of this work is 'The New Moon; or, 'I've lost My Boat, You shan't have Your Hoop'. Contemporary critics made fun of the light hearted subtitle of this work, but it shows Turnerís fondness for children. The coastline in this work is the Kent coast at Margate, which is where Turner often stayed in his later years. Turner worked quickly on this painting. The seascape was partially painted while already in the frame.

          Artist details

          Joseph Mallord William Turner was born in London; he remained a Londoner and kept a Cockney accent all his life despite dominating British landscape painting throughout the first half of the 19th century. He established a reputation in the Royal Academy, first as a topographical watercolourist and then within a few years as a painter of sublime and historical landscapes. From the mid-1790s he settled on the routine he maintained for much of his life: touring in summer and working in the studio in the winter months. He opened his own gallery and had many patrons and admirers as well as detractors. After his death a large body of his works in oil and watercolour was given to the British nation, with many on show at Tate Britain.
