Turner and Italy
BUDAPEST  •  Museum of Fine Arts  •  Ongoing

The thematic exhibition entitled Turner and Italy displays over 80 works presented chronologically to show the career of the artist from his early landscapes to his near-abstract, late pictures. After Ferrara and Edinburgh, this special exhibition, which was compiled by leading English experts on the artist, is on view in Budapest with certain modifications.

Joseph Mallord William Turner (17751851) was one of the most significant landscape painters of the 19th century. His hugely extensive oeuvre is characterised by thematic diversity and endless technical innovation. He painted true-to-life city- and landscapes - he was especially fond of depictions of the sea -, historical and mythological scenes, contemporary events, but his imagination was also inspired by literature.
