J. M. W. Turner: Painting Set Free
At the J. Paul Getty Museum, Getty Center
February 24–May 24, 2015
Extraordinarily inventive and enduringly influential, J. M. W. Turner (1775–1851) produced his most important and famous pictures after the age of sixty, in the last fifteen years of his life. Demonstrating ongoing radicalism of technique and ever-original subject matter, these works show Turner constantly challenging his contemporaries while remaining keenly aware of the market for his art. Bringing together over sixty key oil paintings and watercolors, this major international loan exhibition is the first to focus on the unfettered creativity of Turner’s final years.

The exhibition was organized by Tate Britain, in association with the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.
