Turner – down by the riverside

Blog | By The Old Un | Jan 13, 2020


See Turner’s pictures in Turner’s house! That’s the mouthwatering prospect, until 29th March, at J M W Turner’s house in Twickenham.

For the first time, his pictures, on loan from Tate Britain, will be on show at his home. Five paintings of the neighbouring Thames are in the exhibition, including this one (right), painted just down the road – or just down the river – from his house: Walton Reach (1805).
