Description

Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775 – 1851) is indisputably the greatest exponent of the golden age of English watercolours, and understood how to utilise lighting and transparency on English fields and Venetian lagoons like no other before him.

The exhibition at the Musée Jacquemart-André features around sixty watercolours and close to ten oil paintings, some of which have never before been displayed in France. This has been made possible by some exceptional items being loaned from the Tate Britain in London, which is home to the largest Turner collection in the world. It reveals the role that watercolours played in the life and art of the British painter, from work he did in his youth that he sent to the Royal Academy of Arts to his fascinating experiments with light and colour later in life. Already highly thought of by his peers, Turner’s artwork fascinates people to this day.

An exceptional exhibition that’s definitely not to be missed!
