The Young Turner Exhibition

Ambitions in Architecture and the Art of Perspective
Turner painted ‘Blenheim, Oxfordshire’ in 1833 for his ‘Picturesque Views in England and Wales’ series. This exhibition presents some of the artist’s first commissions and most celebrated topographical works, focusing on his increasing expertise in depicting architecture and perspective from the 1780s – 1810s.
Among the loans from the Ashmolean, Tate and other private collections are Turner’s first sketchbook and diagrams from his Royal Academy lectures in perspective, which have rarely been exhibited before.
