Turner drawing?
Chris (04/19/2015)
I have a pen and ink drawing of an unknown location signed by "JWM Turner RA"in a script very much like one used by him. Does anyone know of any circumstances of the artist reversing the order of his initials?

Did Turner sign his paintings? Is the painting "Solitude" in any museum?

Turner signature
Terry (04/04/2009)
Did Turner ever print his name? I have a w/c on board that depicts a Venetian water scene with Venice in the background, gondolas and people standing on a stone wharf to the right. It is in the style of Turner and signed "TURNER" in the lower right hand corner. It's approximately 6 1/2" X 4 1/2". Where can I find signature samples? Thanks for any assistance. Terry

Franklin Ball (11/13/2007)
I have a similar problem as Debbie Potter. I have a piece in a very old frame of which I would be nervous to take apart. Did he commission prints; waqter and pencil make it hard to say. It is signed on one side J.M.W. Turner R.B. and the other,as best I can tell W. Mitlet. I am uncertain it sayw R.B.; above either. Could someone help. The picture has a rather distinctive suspension bridge in the foreground and a rather substantial building with a tower in the background, It appears to be 18th century and very familiar; as if it was something I had seen in Europe. Thank You, Franklin Ball

The Fighting Temeraire
Debbie Potter (09/09/2007)
Have old picture, and on back of it says: The Fighting Temeraire". Then says Turner then National Gallery London. Not in color. Acouple of ships with sails and one that looks like a steam ship. It looks so fragile i'm afraid to take it out of the frame. It may be a watercolor in a dark brown. I'm not even sure if this would be the right Turner. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
