Musée Jacquemard André

Turner, paintings and watercolors
Tate collections
May 26, 2020 – January 11, 2021

We are hoping to be able to take PAA students to the following exhibition on Turner.
In 2020, the Jacquemart-André museum presents a retrospective of Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851). Unquestionably the greatest representative of the golden age of English watercolor painting, he exploited the effects of light and transparency on English landscapes and Venetian lagoons.
This exhibition reveals the role that watercolors played in Turner’s life and art, from the early works he sent to the Royal Academy to the fascinating light and colorful experiments of his maturity. For a modern audience, these are among his most radical and accomplished works.

Thanks to exceptional loans from London’s Tate Britain, which houses the largest collection of Turners in the world, the Jacquemart-André museum is hosting an exhibition of 60 watercolors and some 10 oil paintings, some of which have never been shown. in France.
