Late Turner: Painting Set Free at Tate Britain

Overview

Tate Britain looks at one of the nation’s greatest artists with the exhibition Late Turner: Painting Set Free

This is the first exhibition to examine the achievements of Turner’s body of work during his final period (1835-50). The exhibition shows work produced after the artist turned 60 - a time when some of his most revered paintings were created. 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 more than 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.
