During the first few years of the nineteenth century, Turner undertook an ambitious set of seventy prints intended for wide dissemination, which became known as the Liber Studiorum [Book of Studies ]. These were loosely based on the idea of Claude Lorrain's (c.1604/5-1682) Liber Veritatis [Book of Truth].
