Despite coronavirus, Paris Musée Jacquemart-André proposes its great retrospective around work by British painter Joseph Mallord William Turner with the “Turner, peintures et aquarelles de la Tate” exhibition, running again from May 26 to January 11, 202 in partnership with London’s Tate. The exhibition is also available on line for a virtual tour.

Big news for British painting enthusiasts, the Musée Jacquemart-André organizes a big retrospective of work by Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851) with the “Turner, peintures et aquarelles de la Tate” exhibition to discover online for free on the cultural venue's website. An exhibition that was said to take place from May 26, 2020 to January 11, 2021.

It’s thanks to the partnership with London’s Tate that this exhibition has been created. As a matter of fact, the London museum houses the greatest Turner collection in the world. After the artist died, the British nation in 1856 gets a huge donation including countless oil paintings, unfinished studies and sketches as well as thousands works on paper: watercolors, drawings and sketchbooks.

The exhibition unveils a part of this intimate funds that offer varied points of view on Turner’s spirit, imagination and private practice through 60 watercolors and a dozen oil paintings, including some that have never been seen before in France!

Indisputably the greatest representative of the golden age of the British watercolor, Joseph Mallord William Turner exploited light effects and transparency on British landscapes and Venetian lagoons. Landscapes that keep on moving us today.

The chronological order of the “Turner, peintures et aquarelles de la Tate” exhibition allows to follow his artistic evolution: from his young works with a certain topographical realism to his most recent works, more radical and accomplished, bright and colorful.
