Having travelled over 12,000 miles around the world and been seen by over three-quarters of a million people in the UK, USA and Canada as part of The EYExhibition: Late Turner – Painting Set Free, these masterpieces are now back on show!
Returning works include much-loved oil paintings like Norham Castle – Sunrise c.1845, Peace – Burial at Sea exhib.1842, and The Dogano, San Giorgio exhib.1842. The new display features over 100 works across eight rooms of the Clore Gallery at Tate Britain, the home of Turner’s work in the UK.
Having his work in four galleries with each room having it’s own theme! One room brings together scenes from Turner’s travels around Britain – from the Lake District in Cumbria to the Tamar Valley in Devon to St Giles’ Cathedral in Edinburgh – while another room explores his European tours to France, Germany and Italy, showcasing luminous visions of Venice including The Sun of Venice Going to Sea 1843.
A group of the radical late works found in the artist’s studio after his death are shown together, including loosely painted landscapes and atmospheric images of light and shade such as Norham Castle – Sunrise c.1845, as will some of his most celebrated depictions of stormy seas and breaking waves.
