The Chairman’s Selection

British Museum, Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3DG

Introduced by Andrew Wilton.

The collection of Turner drawings and watercolours in the British Museum is large and important, including bequests by John Henderson, George Salting and R.W. Lloyd. Many of these are in superb condition; Lloyd in fact bequeathed his magnificent finished Turners to the Museum explicitly to complement the studies and sketchbooks in the Turner Bequest. The removal of the Bequest to Tate has foiled that enlightened plan, but Lloyd’s collection still enjoys an illuminating context. Our visit provides an opportunity to see a wide range of fine Turners in a traditional print room setting.

Numbers are restricted. Please apply to Margaret O’Neill to reserve a place and receive details.
