‘Beyond the Physical: Time in Turner’s Art’

Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art, 16 Bedford Square, London WC1B 3JA

The 39th Kurt Pantzer Memorial Lecture by Sam Smiles

Sam Smiles writes: ‘Turner is habitually understood as an artist who developed highly sophisticated images of places and their visual apprehension. A great deal of research has concentrated on the physical environments he depicted, real and imaginary, and their realisation in pictorial terms. While Turner’s representation of space has, therefore, become a key concern, his approach to time has received rather less attention. It is, however, something that he engaged with throughout his career on a number of different levels.’

Entrance is free, without ticket. Wine will be served after the lecture.
