Lyrical, stylish, and at times achingly poignant, Turner's Paintbox is a love story like no other.Gerard Moyne is a Sydney-based art consultant with a passion for the genius of Turner. He has a particular way of looking at things - discerning, sometimes a little callous, always out of the ordinary. When he meets Julia he falls blindly in love with her, unable to see her as she is.Shadowing their affair is the story of J.M.W. Turner. Known as the Painter of Light, he captured that element within his canvas, as Gerard is captured within the force field of Julia. Her exuberant spontaneity is the opposite of his ordered control, their attraction as mysterious as the workings of art. When it all comes horribly undone, Gerard's perception of life changes profoundly.More
Gerard Moyne, an art consultant with a particular passion for J.M.W. Turner, is not an easy character to like. He is bristly and detached, and his difficulty in engaging his emotions extends even towards his precious Turner paintings. Narrator Humphrey Bower gives Gerard a matter-of-fact, precise tone that still manages to express an unacknowledged sense of regret as Gerard falls in love with the spontaneous Julia, only to have their relationship fall apart. Bower's lyrical performance will have listeners spellbound by this poignant love story.
