The Turner Society’s 41st Kurt Pantzer Memorial Lecture by Professor Stephen Bann
Stephen Bann is Emeritus Professor of Art History at Bristol University. His recent publications and current interest are in the field of print culture, where Turner was a notable innovator, collaborating with printmakers of successive generations to experiment successfully with new techniques and formats. This lecture will examine diverse series from the Southern Coast (1816–24) to the Rivers of France in the mid-1830s, and will argue that Turner’s engagement in the production of such serial publications also helped to provide him with a specific sense of mission which was ultimately fulfilled in some of his major artistic achievements.
This will be a Zoom lecture and details of the log-in arrangement will be circulated to members nearer the date.
