Good Morning Mister Turner

1-31 January. The National Gallery of Ireland holds its annual tribute to the groundbreaking English landscape artist Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851) whose oils and watercolours are seen as the Romantic preface to Impressionism.

The exhibition features the 31 watercolours from the Vaughan Bequest, many of which were painted during Turner's European travels. In January 1900 Henry Vaughan bequeathed the precious works to the gallery which has displayed them to the public every January since. Due to their fragile nature, the watercolours can not be seen at any other time of the year.

This year the exhibition is complimented by a display of etchings and drawings by Irish printmaker Niall Naessens whose work has been inspired by Turner's "brilliant evocations of light and meteorological effects."

Mon-Sat 09.30-17.30 Thurs 09.30-20.30 Sun. 12.00-17.30
