Turner and the Age of British Watercolour

Petworth House and Park

NOW CLOSED

‘Turner and the Age of British Watercolour’ offers a rare opportunity to see a major dimension of British art not normally encountered at Petworth and to consider it alongside their renowned collection of oil paintings and sculpture from the same golden period, 1780-1850. This unique exhibition features 36 outstanding loans from The Higgins Museum, Bedford. Loans include seven compelling watercolours by JMW Turner, and iconic examples by such great contemporaries as John Constable, Paul Sandby, and John Robert Cozens, none of whom are found in the Petworth collection. Find out more about the Turner exhibition from the National Trust website.
