Turner and the County of Kent

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

Turner visited Kent throughout his life, from his early schooldays to his latter years in Margate. The county provided him with both subject matter and inspiration and he made depictions of its landscape, coastline, harbours, and monuments throughout his career.

Nick Reese, Joint Secretary of the Turner Society, who has embarked on a county-by-county study of Turner’s work, will examine aspects of the artist’s relationship with the ‘Garden of England’.
