In our collection in Manchester, William Ralph Turner paintings portray the unique and unexpected charm of industrial landscapes. Born in Chorlton-on-Medlock in Manchester, in 1920, he was largely self-taught. He was also a well-loved art teacher and is one of the last of the practitioners of Northern Art. This school of painters specialised in the portrayal of English industrial scenes. The influence of the work of L S Lowry, a Lancashire artist is in Turner’s work. Lowry had developed his own style that showcased unpeopled, mysterious landscapes, marionette figures, and brooding portraits. Lowry’s influence is visible in some of Turner’s best known works.
