Turner from the Tate: The Making of a Master

Turner from the Tate: The Making of a Master
CANBERRA  •  National Gallery of Australia  •  Ongoing

The exhibition consists of 40 oils complemented by 70 works on paper, from large watercolours to intimate sketches. Elsewhere in the exhibition we see how J. M. W. Turner (1775Ė1851) set himself up as the heir to the European landscape tradition. Featuring remarkable paintings of Turnerís late career including the exquisite Venice, the Bridge of Sighs 1840, the exhibition culminates with powerful seascapes.

As well as many of Turnerís most famous paintings, Turner from the Tate highlights works never shown previously.
