J.M.W. Turner & the ‘Matchless Vale of Thames’

Sunday 29 September

Art historian Catherine Parry-Wingfield explores Turner’s paintings of the Thames capturing one of the river’s most beautiful viewpoints, Richmond Hill. Turner, described by his first biographer as “the great magician”, captures sunrise behind the hill, sunlight on water, and the wide wooded landscape. Catherine is former Chair of Turner’s House Trust and part of the team leading the conservation of Sandycombe Lodge, the house Turner designed as his retreat from London, nestling within the ‘Matchless Vale’.
