About the artist
Painter and etcher Daniel Turner exhibited seven works at the Free Society (1782-83). His address was then Snow Hill in the City and he may have been related to William Turner of that address, a carver, gilder, and print seller who went bankrupt in 1789. Daniel moved to 24 Millbank Street, Westminster, before first exhibiting at the Royal Academy, where he showed ten works, mainly London views (1796-1801). Colourist James Turner was operating from the same address (1786-1806). In December 1806 Daniel was arrested after he drunkenly toasted Napoleon and his armies at the Lemon Tree tavern, Haymarket. The case was later dismissed. By the time colourist Charles Turner of Millbank Street was declared bankrupt in 1811 Daniel had presumably died.
