Naming It would appear Turner named all his paintings.  Generally with a name that captured the spirit of the theme.  With the passing of time, some of these names have been lost.   Some paintings have been renamed for sale.  This has led to the same painting appearing under different names.  “Faithful Friend” (1890) would appear more likely than the alternate name of “Pioneer with fledgling”.  There are a number of titles using the word “Pioneer” - there is some doubt Turner would have referred to his subjects as “Pioneers”. A good example is “A Family Group Travelling Through a Wood” (1907) – the original title was more likely something like … “Walking Off”.  It is a pity so much of the original naming has been lost. The majority of Turners works are in Oil on Canvas or Board.
