TURNER’S ENGLISH COASTS PAINTINGS’ EXHIBITION AT TURNER’S LONDONHOME Saturday May 22 to Sunday September 5 Wednesday to Sunday 10am-4pm prebooking essential Turner’s House, Sandycombe Lodge, 40 Sandycombe Road, St Margarets Twickenham TW1 2LR An exhibition of J M W Turner’s original maritime watercolours and prints opens in his former home in Twickenham this month. Turner’s English Coasts focuses on the artist’s engagement with English marine and coastal subjects at a pivotal time in his career when he was living at Sandycombe Lodge (now called Turner's house); the house he designed and lived in between 1813-26. The exhibition includes projects unprecedented in their breadth and quality through which Turner was to achieve an international reputation. Guest curator, Christine Riding, Curator of British Paintings at the National Gallery, has selected works that underline the close relationship between Turner’s images of maritime Britain and contemporary print culture.
