English painter J.M.W. Turner to be featured at the Art Gallery of Ontario


J.M.W. Turner is also credited with the very first selfie

The Art Gallery of Ontario’s latest exhibition is a tribute to one of the most celebrated English painters, J.M.W. Turner.


“Featuring more than 50 paintings and works on paper on loan from Tate Britain, J.M.W. Turner: Painting Set Free is the first major exhibition to focus on the final and most experimental phase of the artist’s career. Beginning in 1835 and closing with his last exhibitions at the Royal Academy in 1850, the exhibition explores how Turner’s later years were a time of exceptional energy and vigour.”

The exhibition runs from October 31, 2015 to January 31, 2016 so lots of time to check it out.
