Musée Jacquemart-André will honour Turner

From 13 March to 20 July 2020, Musée Jacquemart-André in Paris, will display sixty watercolours and ten oil paintings by the British master, Turner.  Some of these works have never been exhibited in France.

The exhibition will include exceptional loans from Tate Britain in London, which houses the largest collection of Turner’s works in the world. The exhibition will chronologically explore the life and oeuvre of Turner, from his earlier years at the Royal Academy of Arts to his more mature works.

Described as the ‘father of modern art’ by John Ruskin, Turner often surprised his peers with his brushwork and vibrant colour palette while portraying the development of the modern world unlike any other artist at the time.
