Event description

Description

Turner’s House, Sandycombe Lodge was built in 1813 to the designs of the great landscape painter JMW Turner as a quiet retreat from the pressure of the London art world. The house is set in the landscape of the Thames that Turner knew so well and often painted, and saw Turner through his beloved fishing trips. It provided the setting for gatherings of his closest friends, notably the architect John Soane, whose influence on Turner is evident in many details of this modest and graceful home. As such the house provides a unique insight into the character of JMW Turner and the spirit of his work. The Connoisseur Tour will give art and history enthusiasts a detailed account of the history and architecture of Turner’s largest work of art, the artist’s time here, the restoration project and process of conservation. The tour will be led by Catherine Parry-Wingfield, the chair of Turner’s House Board of Trustees and an art historian with an specialism in JMW Turner. She has been instrumental in the restoration of Sandycombe Lodge from the very beginning and her knowledge on the subject is unparalleled. She also owns the period watercolour used to illustrate this event.

There are very limited places on this tour. Hence ticket named '1st session'. If that sells out, we'll add 2nd session to follow.
