Talk by Cecilia Powell
Although Turner is rightly acclaimed for his originality, we should not forget that his work was grounded in his admiration for the art of the past, where a major role was often played by mythology. This talk will show that his interest in mythology, especially that of Greece and Rome, is far more prevalent in his sketches and drawings than is usually supposed.
