JMW Turner in Dallas

JMW Turner - Regulus (1828) reworked 1837 © Tate, LondonLast Sunday the Dallas Museum of Art opened a major retrospective of the art of J. M. W. Turner with about 140 of his paintings, roughly 50/50 oils and watercolours, many never exhibited in the USA before. This example - Regulus (1828) reworked 1837, bequeathed by the artist to the Tate Gallery as it was in 1856 - looks as thougn it needs a good clean. Southerners take note: this will be the only US showing south of the Mason-Dixon line, whatever that is. The exhibition continues until 18 May.
