Description: George Turner (1843-1910)Turner was born in Cromford,
Derbyshire in England, but then moved to Derby with his family.
He showed an early talent for music and art - encouraged by his father
Thomas Turner, who although a tailor by profession was also an art enthusiast.
Turner was largely self-taught and went on to become a professional
painter and art teacher.He lived in Derbyshire all his life.
In 1865 he married Eliza Lakin (1837 - 1900), becoming a part-time farmer
and raising four children at Walnut farm in Barrow upon Trent.
He had a number of successful students including David Payne and
Louis Bosworth Hurt.After Eliza's death in 1900, he moved to Kirk Ireton
and later married fellow artist Kate Stevens Smith (1871-1964) -
they set up home in Idridgehay where he died in 1910.
His son William Lakin Turner (1867-1936) also became a landscape oil painter of repute.Turner worked in oils and painted bucolic scenes mainly of his native Derbyshire, leaving an important legacy of hundreds of pictures depicting the English countryside before the coming of mechanisation, the motor car and urban expansion. His work was exhibited in Nottingham and Birmingham. Turner served on the Art Committee of Derby Art Gallery and both his and his son's paintings are included in the city's collection. Turner has 22 paintings in National collections in the United Kingdom.
