Tour of Turner’s Modern and Ancients Ports: Passages through Time
April 20, 2017
Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775–1851), 19th-century Britain’s greatest land and seascape artist, depicted ports throughout his career, both in monumental oil paintings and in watercolors.
Join us for a tour of this major exhibition that brings together some thirty-five works by Turner from the 1810s through the late 1830s in oil, watercolor, and graphite that capture contemporary cities in England, France, and Germany, as well as imagined scenes set in the ancient world.
By invitation only.
