This volume is published to accompany an exhibition at Petworth House to mark the restoration of the Carved Room where J.M.W. Turner's paintings will be reinstated in their original positions in the panelling. Petworth House was a special place for Turner, both as the home of his great patron, Lord Egremont, and as the scene of many happy visits. Turner recorded the beauties of the great English house in over 100 gouache drawings and for the house itself he painted, among other things, four landscapes to hang in the Carved Room. This book celebrates Turner's relationship with Petworth and its owner through the reproduction of over 150 works, prefaced by thematic essays written by scholars from the National Trust and Tate.
