Turner Exhibition at the Fitzwilliam Museum

For those of you interested in watercolour – take some delightful time out to see these amazing paintings on show at the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, UK




Ruskin’s Turners

The Fitzwilliam Museums’ collection of watercolours by J.M.W. Turner was founded in 1861 by the generous gift of twenty-five watercolours from John Ruskin, Turner’s most fervent champion and critic. The exhibition includes watercolours made for engraving, book illustration and vignettes, as well as landscape watercolours.

The restrictions which Ruskin imposed on the terms of his gift mean that these drawings may not be lent outside the Museum. This exhibition offers a unique opportunity to view the Turner watercolours that once formed part of his collection.
