JMW Turner @ Tate Britain, London

There’s been a groundswell of publicity building up for the great British artist JMW Turner. The Mike Leigh, Timothy Spall film about Turner and simply called “Mr Turner” has opened in UK cinemas. He was almost single-handedly the father of Impressionism. He painted “how he felt” as well as how one objectively saw the world in front of him. I was in London for the great exhibition of Turner’s later paintings at Tate Britain – which runs until the end of January 2015. It’s superb ! But I also recorded my own impressions looking at the permanent exhibition in the Tate’s Turner Gallery…
