‘The Elephant in the Print Room: Turner and Mythology’

Prints & Drawings Room, Clore Gallery for the Turner Collection, Tate Britain, Millbank, London SW1P 4RG

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.

Entrance is free, but numbers are restricted. Please apply with SAE to Margaret O’Neill (see above) to reserve a place and receive details.
