Online Talk: JMW Turner’s Rustic Retreat in Twickenham

September 18 @ 3:00 pm BST

Turner’s House (Sandycombe Lodge) tells a unique story- it is was designed and lived in by the great British artist JMW Turner. In this special talk, House Director and historian Ricky Pound will guide us through the history of Turner’s country villa, from the purchase of the land in 1807, to its subsequent sale in 1826. It is a very human story of Turner and his father who desired a country retreat away from the pressures of London life, in the idyllic, arcadian setting of the Matchless Vale of Thames.

The talk will highlight the intention of the house and illustrate the creative input of Turner’s great friend, the architect, fellow Royal Academician and fisherman, Sir John Soane.

We can think of Sandycombe Lodge as Turner’s largest work of art. Towards the end of his life Turner said that if he could live it again, he would have been an architect. His house at Sandycombe stands testament to this lifelong desire.

This is a live talk on Zoom.  You will be sent the online zoom link to join the talk via email one hour before it begins.
