Turner’s Wessex

The Salisbury Museum in Wiltshire recently opened its major summer exhibition: Turner’s Wessex: Architecture and Ambition. This is the first ever exhibition devoted to J M W Turner’s drawings and paintings of Salisbury Cathedral, the city and its surroundings. Shown is Turner's watercolour Stonehenge, Wiltshire (ca 1827-28) painted for Picturesque Views in England and Wales. Alongside its own collection, the Museum has gathered extensive loans from art galleries and museums across the UK. Much of it focuses on Turner's work as a young man and shows his relationships with two rich patrons. Admission for adults is an annual fee of £8 (CLICK).
