Our first major show of Turner works explores the important role that the depiction of the elements played in Turner’s landscape watercolours and late paintings, in particular his fascination with capturing the elements in combination.
Throughout his career Turner was considered a painter of the elements.
Featuring over 70 watercolours alongside a selection of signature oil paintings, the exhibition also examines how Turner’s vision of the elements in combination was closely linked to discoveries in the natural sciences of his day.
Turner and the Elements is organised in collaboration with Bucerius Kunst Forum, Hamburg 2 June - 11 September 2011 and The National Museum, Cracow 1 October 2011 - 8 January 2012.
