Mystic Seaport Museum will host a major monographic exhibition devoted to the watercolors of one Britain’s greatest painters: J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851). This exhibit is organized in cooperation with Tate. Mystic Seaport Museum will be the only North American venue for the exhibition, which will be on display October 5, 2019-February 23, 2020.The exhibition – curated by David Blayney Brown, Tate’s Manton Senior Curator of British Art 1790-1850 – will provide an exceptional opportunity to see key works spanning the entire career of the famous artist. A unique collection of 97 works, the selection will provide a view into the evolution of the artist’s vision and creative process.”Few artists have captured the beauty and majesty of the sea as J.M.W. Turner. Anyone who has sought art that accurately represents their personal experience of the sea has had to contend with the sheer genius of his lifelong look at that subject,” says Steve White, president of Mystic Seaport Museum. “This is not an exhibition of the sea, but Turner represents for so many the most sublime representation of that feeling in art, and this remarkable exhibition is a unique opportunity to step into his world and view in this country some of the riches he left his nation upon his death.”
