Will Tom Free read ´ 104 Read & Download Will Tom Is strange both above and below stairs and Will's treatment by his hosts is surprisingly offhand Most perplexing of all however is the appearance of another painter his childhood friend and now rival Tom Girtin While Tom is welcomed into the aristocratic circle Will finds few allies As it becomes harder to ignore the whisper. Really enjoyed this book than I thought I would when I first picked it up I didn t know much about JMW Turner who is the titular Will or the lesser known Tom Girtin but it was interesting when I got to the end and the author had a little info on their real lives to see what parts of their lives he had drawn from in the book I can imagine that if you were a big fan of art and artists at the end of the 18th Century this would be a really interesting book for you I loved reading about the time period and the politics at play with the upper and lower classes The plot was a lot of fun tightly wound and suspenseful Plampin s writing style is excellent very evocative and the pacing is well done

Will Tom Free read ´ 104 Read & Download Will Tom West Yorkshire 1797When rising artist Will Turner arrives at Harewood House in high summer his intention is to sketch the house and grounds receive his commission and return to London where he has started attracting serious attention at the Royal AcademyBut things at the grand house are not uite as he expects The atmosphere. 35 starsConsigned to a poky room in Harewood House to his mind the casket chamber Will Turner readies himself to perform the task for which he has been hired ie several drawings of Harewood House and environ He braces himself for the bowing and scraping that he ll have to do in spite of the honours already received at his young age to gain the Lascelles family s patronageHarewood House attributionHe soon discovers that he is not the only invited artist but that his friend Tom Girtin is also present and is in fact competing against him Both artists are a project of Beau Lascelles a fact that does not sit well with Turner Will is perplexed and confounded by the treatment he receives and angry that Tom has a comfortable upstairs room near the family members whilst Will has a cramped space amongst the servants Two friends two artists both of a similar background but being treated very differently Very odd indeed Family guests and servants alike behave in an extraordinary manner Meanwhile all Will wants to do is workIn this fanciful take of a possible joint visit to Harewood House there are various shenanigans and nefarious goings on in which Will becomes and embroiled much against his own instincts There is an hilarious incident in which Will nervously stuffs his mouth so full that he cannot chew and struggles to swallow a metaphor perhaps for having taken on than he could chew by accepting the commission at Harewood House not in terms of artistic prowess but about fitting into that social sphere I had initially intended a higher rating but unfortunately the plot eventually loses credibility and becomes sillyFor the most part I enjoyed the portrayal of William Turner and having seen the film Mr Turner I could not help seeing actor Timothy Spall s face and hearing his voice as I read a testament to his memorable portrayal of the artistIt is a novel about artists friendship and class distinction It also references slavery as the Lascelles family s fortune was made from the slavery trade Some extracts He itches to tell her that he has never never once in his life received undeserved praise and name some of the notable connoisseurs and newspaper critics who have singled out William Turner for special attentionBurying his puzzlement he thinks only of the conversation he might make Nothing comes though no topics no opportunities The company moves seamlessly from one society scandal to the next an animated parade of disclosures dropped names and allusions interspersed with peals of nasty laughter He forces a grin at a couple of Beau s jokes and even at one of Mr Purkiss s feeling a pinch of self loathing as he does soThe heat is staggering rather like being slowly poached within your clothes a salty human mist clouds the air and the very walls are stippled with moisture as if they are sweating along with the multitude they contain This suffocating atmosphere positively throbs with flattery and forced laughterHe looks now and by God it is achingly fine A full moon lies against the sky like a new shilling Around it in every direction the clouds are in retreat dark trailing strands wispily thin banished by the great brightness behind The landscape below the rocks and winding hedgerows and patches of woodland is coloured through a scale of silver white to blackish blue but he observes a note of gold as well where the moon s influence is strongest a faint corona that projects earthwards lending a warm contour to a range of distant hilltopsAnd laid before them soaring above them is the heart stopping fullness of the dawn Sunlight rakes over a mountainous array of clouds The giant forms are clear and crisp tinted with silvery pinks and bordered with a line of burnished copper Beyond is a mighty sweep of colour ranging from deep indigo and vermillion through to a celestial yellow white the transition impossibly smooth The effect is one of inestimable distance of unfathomable scale of infinity so awful and elatingThey approach weaving and slurring yet also markedly sombre like a well oiled funerary procession that has mislaid its coffin Notes Joseph Mallord William Turner 1775 1851 In his Historical Note the author states In this period watercolour paintings were commonly referred to as drawings and watercolour brushes as pencils this was partly to distinguish them from paintings in oil which was considered the far superior medium Tom Girtin 1775 1802Talking about Tom Girtin the author states He d been to Harewood in 1796 and would go again in 1799 1800 and perhaps 1801 as well but it has never been established that he was there at the same time as Turner About the Author Matthew Plampin was born in 1975 and lives in London He completed a PhD at the Courtauld Institute of Art and has written and lectured on nineteenth century art and architecture He is the author of three previous novels Illumination The Street Philosopher and The Devil s Acre
