Turner in Boston

Undoubtedly J. M. W. Turner was a painter in advance more than the artists of his period.
During years catheterized by the industrial revolution which machine power replaced manpower, social reforms, different wars, a political unrest, changes in the living style, Turner has been the only painter to make reality in continuous movement through a skillful use of light and color.
Artistically he was in step with his times, so much that he was contemporary today as well as in his times.
The title of the exhibition “Turner’s Modern World” means how Turner was clever and skill to interpretate his epoch. More than one hundred among paintings, watercolors, drawings and sketchbooks from March 27 to July 10, 2022 are ready to host visitors underling the main topics of the Britain’s artist.
For example on show: Snow Storm: Hannibal and his Army Crossing the Alps (1812) from Tate Britain, The Burning of the Houses of Lords and Commons, October 16, 1834 (1835) from the Cleveland Museum of Art and the MFA’s own Slave Ship (Slavers Throwing Overboard the Dead and Dying, Typhoon Coming On) (1840).
Between poetry and drama, here you are Joseph Mallord William Turner (London, April 23, 1775 – London, December 19, 1851).
