Turner & The Masters
Tate Britain's winter biggy is Turner and the Masters, which sets itself the ambitious task of exploring the influence of the old masters on Turner's oil paintings. More than 100 masterpieces will be brought together for the show, including works by Canaletto, Claude, Poussin, Rembrandt, Rubens and Titian. For the first time Turner's landscapes of Wales, including Dolbadern Castle, Harlech Castle and Ewenny Priory (above), will be shown together. The bad news as always is the cost of admission: adults £12.50, silver surfers £11.00 (88%, ripoff!) and families £31. Turner and the Masters runs from 23 September to 31 January 2010.
