‘He has been here and fired a gun’: J.M.W. Turner, his fellow-painters and the critics – London Luminaries

5 September @ 7:00 pm8:00 pm BST

In this online talk, two expert speakers will discuss how Turner’s unorthodox methods of painting invoked cruel responses from his critics.

J.M.W. Turner was a prodigy, successful commercially and elected a Royal Academician at a young age. Inevitably this early rise to fame and fortune, and in later years his increasingly unorthodox methods of painting, caused rivalry from other artists, and cruel satire, both verbal and visual, from his critics.

Catherine Parry-Wingfield is an art historian with a long career in teaching and lecturing, specialising in the visual arts of 18th and early 19th century Britain and Europe.
