‘The Rhine Revisited’

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

The 38th Kurt Pantzer Memorial Lecture by Cecilia Powell.

Turner’s travels along the Rhine and its tributaries, together with his many depictions of the area, were the subject of Cecilia Powell’s research at the Clore Gallery in 1989–90 and featured in her Tate catalogues, Turner’s Rivers of Europe: The Rhine, Meuse and Mosel (1991) and Turner in Germany (1995).

The bicentenary of Turner’s first visit to the Rhineland in 1817 provides an opportunity to review our understanding of that tour. This will lead on to a wider consideration of the handling of Turner research generally in the digital age.

6 for 6.30 p.m. Entry is free, without ticket. Wine will be served after the lecture.
