This landmark exhibition celebrates Turner's lifelong fascination with the sea, bringing together an outstanding collection of masterpieces from around the world including The Fighting Temeraire, voted ‘Britain’s favourite painting’, and Wreck of a Transport Ship, not seen in the UK for nearly 40 years.
Explore Turner’s pioneering and often controversial approach in capturing the beauty and power of seascapes, alongside iconic works by other great artists including van de Velde, Vernet, Constable and Gainsborough.
Take in his experimental style in depicting the sea’s many moods and dramas with extraordinary effects of light and colour, conveying atmosphere and feeling as much as physical form.
See Turner as you’ve never seen him before, at the heart of Maritime Greenwich.
