JMW Turner’s reputation as an artist of international influence and importance justifiably
rests on his landscape work. However, he also turned his artistic gaze towards the human form.
These drawings of the female figure, never intended to be seen by the public, are personal and
intimate and show a little recognises side to Turner. Join the curators of our exhibition of
Turner’s nudes, acclaimed author Franny Moyle and award-winning art historian Jackie Riding,
as they discuss their inspirations and insights from the exhibition.
