Tate Britain look at one of the nation’s greatest artists with the exhibition Late Turner: Painting Set Free. Surprisingly, this is the first exhibition to examine the achievements of Turner’s body of work during his final period (1835-50).

A time when some of his most revered paintings were created, the exhibition begins when the artist turned 60. The pictures on display show how a comparatively elderly man channelled exceptional energy and vigour into his work following an extensive tour around Europe.

Exhibiting over 150 works from both the UK and abroad, the show looks to counter the idea of the elderly artist being a spent force. Displaying inventive new techniques and processes while using new materials, the proof is on display that the artist lived up to his great reputation right until the end.
