Tate Britain: Turner, Whistler, Monet


Preview: Jack Foley

TATE Britain is proud to annouce the immiment arrival of Turner Whistler Monet, an extraordinary exhibition which draws on the influences and relationship between three giants of 19th Century art.

Art enthusiasts are strongly recommended to book tickets in advance to avoid disappointment as this exhibition is already proving extremely popular.

JMW Turner, James McNeill Whistler and Claude Monet each changed the course of landscape painting.

Whistler and Monet were friends and both initially acknowledged the profound influence of Turner, adopting and working their own variations on themes developed by their artistic predecessor.

Turner’s atmospheric effects gave rise to Whistler’s Thames Nocturnes, and both Turner and Whistler informed Monet’s revolutionary paintings that went on to inspire the term Impressionism.

This exceptional exhibition focuses on views of the River Thames, the Seine and the city and lagoon of Venice, offering visitors a rare opportunity to see works which were highly controversial in their own day but are now seen as some of the most poetic and evocative images ever produced.

It has been organised by the Art Gallery of Ontario, Tate Britain and the Réunion des musées Nationaux and musée d'Orsay.
