Big news for British painting enthusiasts, the Musée Jacquemart-André keeps its current retrospective of work by Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851) with the “Turner, peintures et aquarelles de la Tate” exhibition to discover until January 11, 2021! The exhibition is closed until further notice.
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! Paintings return to the travels the painter went to. England, Italy, France, Belgium... Europe is depicted with pastel on Turner's paintings.
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.
In the meantime, you can discover a superb selection of pictures to make you dream a bit and escape reality for a while!
