The National Gallery of Art is trying to put the work of Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851) in proper perspective with “J.M.W. Turner,” an exhibition of more than 140 oil paintings. Here is 1797’s “Transept of Ewenny Priory, Glamorganshire,” a work in watercolor, scraping-out and pencil on paper. (National Museum Wales/National Gallery of Art)
