Great artists unique visions and perceptions have fascinated and delighted -- and sometimes outraged -- people throughout history. 'Landscapes Through Time with David Dunlop' offers viewers the opportunity to experience that unique artistic vision in a new way. The series travels to the same renowned gardens, groves, seascapes and mountainous terrains that served as the inspiration for some of the world's most celebrated and familiar works of art.
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.
