The Turner Society’s Annual General Meeting


The AGM will take place via Zoom on Saturday 4 December at 2.30 p.m. Log-in details will be sent to members nearer the time.

Including ‘Turner and Peter-boats’, a short talk by our Chairman, Pieter van der Merwe

Turner is recognised as the master of evocative representation of early paddle- steamers – at least in spirit rather than in pedantic detail. Another and smaller working vessel that features unusually often in his English marine subjects the now-vanished ‘peter-boat’, the typical lower Thames fishing craft of his time. This talk will explain their characteristics and use, based on examples found in his work and other contemporary illustrations.
