‘Turner’s Tours of the West Country, 1811–14’

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

Talk by Nick Reese

Between 1811 and 1814 Turner undertook three summer tours of the West Country during which he gathered material for his Picturesque Views on the Southern Coast of England series. As well as the drawings in his sketchbooks, the tours inspired Turner to make a number of watercolours and a series of marvellous oil sketches around Plymouth and the Tamar Valley. Nick Reese will talk about his personal selection in front of the works themselves.
