An extremely rare print and its copper etching plate feature in a stunning new exhibition on the work of British landscape artist, JMW Turner at the Lady Lever Art Gallery. The print, The Felucca, is the first of only 30 ever made and is part of the Liber Studiorum series, Turner’s illustrative argument for the supremacy of landscape painting. Together with the copperplate original and the first five prints of the series, it forms a glimpse into Turner’s lifelong determination to raise the profile of landscape art.
