Picture of Turner and the Sea

About the event

Throw yourself into Turner’s dramatic depictions of sunsets, storms and shipwrecks, which revolutionized maritime art and have since become some of Britain’s best-loved paintings.

This landmark exhibition celebrates his lifelong fascination with the sea, bringing together an outstanding collection of masterpieces from around the world including The Fighting Temeraire, voted ‘Britain’s favourite painting’, and Wreck of a Transport Ship, not seen in the UK for nearly 40 years.

Explore Turner’s pioneering and often controversial approach in capturing the beauty and power of seascapes, alongside iconic works by other great artists including van de Velde, Vernet, Constable and Gainsborough.

Take in his experimental style in depicting the sea’s many moods and dramas with extraordinary effects of light and colour, conveying atmosphere and feeling as much as physical form.
