The Turner Museum™

Edward Hodges Baily - Statue of J.M.W. Turner (ca 1858)Isn't it strange to see J.M.W. Turner dressed as a 19th Century gentleman? His work seems far too modern for those historic togs. Following yesterday's post on Paths to Fame: Turner Watercolours from The Courtauld, my readers and I received an invitation from Douglass Montrose-Graem to visit The Turner Museumâ„¢ (title link). This is an online museum dedicated to Joseph Mallard William Turner, launched in 1973. Its design is very attractive and it's well worth a visit, especially for Turner's US fans. The statue of Turner is by Edward Hodges Baily (ca 1858).
