Daniel Turner was an English painter of landscapes, architectural views, portraits and historical paintings.
He is best known for his most charming views of London, the Thames and the surrounding countryside. These were of the smallest and neatest, faithful to every brick in a wall yet so prettily coloured as to render them objects of art as well of topographical interest.
His architectural views and in particular the way he paints his bridges help identify him as an artist.
Views of Peterborough and Rouen Cathedrals and some antiquities in Scotland are the only scenes done by him outside London, and these only in etchings, at which Turner was adept.
His topographical London views provide one of the best groups of how the City looked in the 18th Century, which was a time of much building and change.
Turner exhibited his work from 1782 to 1801, 7 at the Free Society of Artists and 10 at the Royal Academy, these mostly being views of London’s bridges and the surrounding streets.
It is recorded that he lived at 24 Millbank Street, London and Millbank Row, Horseferry, London.
Daniel Turner is sometimes called David but this is an error.
