Mr. Turner explores the last quarter century of the great if eccentric British painter J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851).

Throughout this, he travels, paints, stays with the country aristocracy, visits brothels, is a popular if anarchic member of the Royal Academy of Arts, has himself strapped to the mast of a ship so that he can paint a snowstorm, and is both celebrated and reviled by the public and by royalty…
