J. M. W. Turner: Painting Set Free

Herbst Exhibition Galleries
June 20, 2015September 20, 2015

Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775–1851) was one of the greatest British artists of the nineteenth century. His paintings are revered for their spectacular effects of light and color, and have influenced generations of artists. His late work, created between 1835 and 1850, articu­lated a radical vision that was heedless of public reaction, and explored such themes as the rise and fall of civilizations, the natural and industrial worlds, and religious and cultural mythology.

Location 

This exhibition is organized by Tate Britain in association with the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco and the J. Paul Getty Museum.
