Mystic Seaport Museum is hosting a major monographic exhibition devoted to the watercolors of one of Britain’s greatest painters: J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851). This exhibit is organized in cooperation with Tate. Mystic Seaport Museum will be the only North American venue for the exhibition, which will be on display October 5, 2019 – February 23, 2020. The exhibition – curated by David Blayney Brown, Tate’s Manton Senior Curator of British Art 1790-1850 – provides an exceptional opportunity to see key works spanning the entire career of the famous artist. A unique collection of 97 works, the selection will provide a view into the evolution of the artist’s vision and creative process.
