Journey with Turner: watercolors from the Taft collection

Exhibition January 18 − April 14, 2019
Exhibition "Travel with Turner»Invites visitors to follow the British artist on his travels in the UK and Europe through his watercolors and interactive digital map. During his travels, Turner filled out album after album, collecting reference materials, which he later turned into more detailed watercolors and oil paintings.

A prolific artist and fearless traveler, Turner was especially inspired by mountains, alpine lakes, glaciers, river valleys and sea coasts, as well as the presence of people in these dramatic conditions. This exhibition of ten watercolors Taft is devoted to beautiful places, including dramatic landscapes from Switzerland, Germany, France, England, Scotland and Italy. Since these delicate watercolor paints are kept in stock to protect them from the harmful effects of light, it is an opportunity to see these treasures from the Taft collection every few years.
