HRH the Prince of Wales as Patron of the Turner Society has prepared a special introduction to this series of talks on Turner to celebrate the imminent arrival of his watercolour of Malmesbury Abbey for Malmesbury.
The son of a Covent Garden barber, Turner was a classic example of a self-made man in an era when such mobility was the exception. From his first watercolour exhibited at the Royal Academy when he was fifteen to the final oils exhibited sixty years later, he experimented and took landscape painting to a radically new place, truly exploring the face of nature and the sublime. He brought tempests and snowstorms into the gallery and dissolved castles and mountains into paint and light.
