Turner & the sea
This landmark exhibition celebrates the lifelong fascination of J.M.W. Turner with the sea, bringing together an outstanding collection of masterpieces from around the world including The Fighting Temeraire, voted ‘Britain’s favourite painting’, and Wreck of a Transport Ship, not seen in the UK for nearly 40 years.
Explore Turner’s pioneering and often controversial approach in capturing the beauty and power of seascapes, alongside iconic works by other great artists including van de Velde, Vernet, Constable and Gainsborough.
Take in his experimental style in depicting the sea’s many moods and dramas with extraordinary effects of light and colour, conveying atmosphere and feeling as much as physical form.
Visiting exhibitions always deserves a proper break afterwards, so we will enjoy some food and drinks at and around the Greenwich market.
In keeping with the maritime character of this meetup, we will then proceed to visit the Cutty Sark, the last surviving tea clipper. You can explore the different decks of the Cutty Sark and stand below the copper plated keel, by now a world famous picture.
