From 6,00 €

Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya


The English painter, J.M.W. Turner, wasknown as the painter of light. Now, an exhibition of works by one of the founders of English watercolour landscape painting comes to Barcelona.


The Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya, in association with the Tate Gallery in London, is hosting the exhibitionTurner. Light is Colour.

For Joseph Mallard William Turner, the elements of nature were abstract forces, with their own symbolism and meaning. This exhibition brings together some hundred works, from paintings and drawings to sketches and prints,and explores his fascination with meteorological and atmospheric phenomena, from the beginnings of his work, in the 1790s, to the late 1840s.

The exhibition reveals how watercolour enabled Turner to give a scientific focus to landscapes as well as a great expressive precision, which makes him unique. This exhibition confronts the viewer with a sensory experience of nature.
