Exhibition of original maritime watercolours and prints to open at Turner's House in Twickenham
5 May 2021
An exhibition of J.M.W. Turner’s original maritime watercolours and prints is to open in his former home in Twickenham on Saturday 22 May 2021, thanks to a generous loan from Tate.
Turner’s English Coasts focuses on the artist’s engagement with English marine and coastal subjects at a pivotal time in his career when he was living at Sandycombe Lodge - the house he designed and lived in between 1813 to 1826, at Sandycoombe Road, St Margarets, Twickenham TW1 2LR.
Guest-curator Christine Riding has selected works that underline the close relationship between Turner’s images of maritime Britain and contemporary print culture. The exhibition includes projects financed by professional engravers and publishers to those instigated by Turner himself.
Turner’s English Coasts will be open to the public from Saturday 22 May until Sunday 5 September 2021, Wednesday to Sunday between 10am and 4pm.
Prebooking is essential via turnershouse.org.
