Turner: The Vaughan Bequest

The National Gallery of Ireland presents its annual January exhibition of watercolours by English Romantic landscape painter JMW Turner (1775-1851).

The gallery's Vaughan Bequest comprises 31 of Turner's watercolours and drawings collected by Henry Vaughan, the English collector who bequeathed his large Turner collection to the national galleries in London, Dublin and Edinburgh, following his death in 1899.

Vaughan's bequest to the national gallery in Dublin stipulated that the works should be exhibited, free of charge, each January when the light is at its lowest. Curated by Anne Hodge and Niamh MacNally, the exhibition includes some of Turner's most striking watercolours painted during his later European tours: the Doge's Palace in Venice, Lake Lucerne, and the fortresses at Bellinzona in Switzerland.

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