Turner in January

It’s the start of a new year, which means another chance to enjoy the annual display of JMW Turner watercolours at the National Galleries. The collection was bequeathed by Henry Vaughan, and the work ranges from early topographical wash drawings to the atmospheric sketches of continental Europe in the 1830s and 1840s.

National Galleries of Scotland, Edinburgh, until Sat 30 Jan.

Turner in January

The annual display of JMW Turner watercolours bequeathed by Henry Vaughan, from early topographical wash drawings to the atmospheric sketches of continental Europe in the 1830s and 1840s. At Vaughan's behest, the delicate watercolours are only shown in January when daylight is weak to avoid fading.
