J. M. W. Turner (1775–1851) is one of Britain’s greatest artists and a key figure of the Romantic generation. He is celebrated as a highly modern painter, his work much admired for its experimental character.

Turner from the Tate includes many of the artist’s most famous paintings. It provides a comprehensive overview of Turner’s monumental landscapes and atmospheric, light-filled seascapes, while offering extraordinary insights into his working life and practices. The exhibition includes 110 works, including 40 oil paintings and 70 works on paper and will convey how Turner established himself as a master of the European landscape tradition. It offers fresh perspectives on an artist who was valued as a master in his own time and whose impact was felt as far away as Australia.

Turner from the Tate, organised by Art Exhibitions Australia, is presented by the Tate in association the Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide, and the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra.
