Summary
Venice is the subject that dominates the later paintings of J. M. W. Turner. Its shimmering radiance, ethereal beauty, and faded magnificence inspired some of his best-loved and most enchanting images-dazzling reflections on light and color, history and literature, tradition and modernity. This program explores all aspects of the rich relationship between the illustrious painter and the city he loved so well. Interviews with Ian Warrell, curator of a Turner exhibition at Tate Britain; historian David Laven; poet Andrew Motion; and artist Cornelia Parker are featured.
