British Landscape Artists

Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851) - aka JMW Turner - was one of Britain's greatest painters. 

David Hockney (1937-present) has been voted the UK's most popular living artist. He's well known for painting the Californian landscape.  Recently he's been painting landscapes in East Yorkshire.  

Peter Doig is one of Britain's most prominent and exciting young painters. He broke auction records for a living European artist in 2007 when his painting White Canoe sold for $11.7million at Sotheby's.
