Turner: Watercolours from the West brings together works from the Holburne Museum, Victoria Art Gallery, the Wilson, and a private collection, and is the first opportunity to see Bristol Museum & Art Gallery’s new acquisition ‘The Mouth of the Avon, Seen from a Cave below Clifton’.
These detailed early Bristol and Bath scenes show the emergence of interests that can still be seen in his looser, more atmospheric later works.
This exhibition is a Frameworks tour raising the profile of five fantastic art collections within an hour’s drive time of each other: Bristol Museum & Art Gallery, Holburne Museum, Swindon Art Gallery and Museum, Victoria Art Gallery and The Wilson.
The exhibition is supported by a programme of events and activities. See What’s On for details
