Turner Tour at Tate Britain

Turner Tour at Tate Britain (free)

Meeting Point Signage in Reception Clore Entrance - Tate Britain.

Your guide is Carpe Diem member and Tate guide, Jennifer. However as this tour will also be open to members of the public please be prompt as it does need to start at 3pm.

Suggest after the tour , spend another 45 mins enjoying the Galleries and meet up at the nearby Morpeth Arms which is on the same side as Tate Britain, facing the river, towards Vauxhall Bridge (3 mins walk)

Joseph Mallord William Turner [masked]) a London Cockney from humble origins, rose to become one of the greatest English landscape painters of international repute in the first half of the 19th Century.

Often referred to as the painter of light, drama and the sublime, Turner’s creations displayed a type of native genius. Using techniques and materials way ahead of his time Turner blazed a trail for generations of artists to come. We will compare and contrast his work with that of the other great English landscape painter John Constable whose creations defined a sense of the typical English landscape. These artists are famous as a pair of opposites both in temperament and style.
