HISTORICAL PAINTINGS OF THE ICONIC RIVER THAMES
Joseph Mallord William Turner (April 1775- 1851) was an English Romantic landscape painter, watercolourist and printmaker, whose style can be said to have the foundation for Impressionism. He spent much of his life near the River Thames and did many paintings of ships and waterside scenes, both in watercolour and in oils, His famous painting The ‘Fighting Temeraire’ 1838
James McNeill Whistler (July 1834-1903), an American artist, spent most of his life in Victorian London. Throughout the 1860s and 1870s, Whistler was drawn to the bustling and rapidly changing urban neighbourhood surrounding Battersea Bridge – and, of course, to the River Thames that meander through in the heart of London.
Claude Monet (November 1840- 1926), painted a series of impressionist oil paintings of the Palace of Westminster, home of the British Parliament, Thames River, in 1899 and the early months of 1900 – 1901 during stays in London.
