Born in Cromford, Derbyshire in 1843 Turner worked mainly in the Birmingham, Barrow-on-Trent and Indringehay areas. His panoramic, lush landscapes are relatively broad brushed, but have wonderful composition, proportion and lighting and are very appealing and easy on the eye. Turner’s depictions of life among the hills and rivers give a fine historical record of local rural living in the late 19th century. He later moved to Indringehay where he died in 1910. George’s work was exhibited at the Royal Society of British Artists. When the railways started making inroads into British life, George like many of his peers made tracks to Scotland produced work of similar style to the likes of Louis Bosworth Hurt and Alfred de Breanski. His work is becoming very popular and can be found in many important collections, including the Derby museum.
