Turner and the Whale

Saturday 7 October 2017 - Sunday 7 January 2018

Description:

An exhibition that unites Hull’s own whaling collections with works from JMW Turner, Turner & The Whaleoffers unique insight into Hull’s finest artists and the artistic mind of one of the art world’s most revered landscape painters.

On loan from the Tate’s national collection, Turner’s three rare whaling scenes and one maritime scene date from the period when Hull held the title of the UK’s largest whaling port, bringing context to our own nationally recognised pieces and providing the perfect complement to the Turner Prize that bears his name.

In partnership with the University of York and the Tate. Supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund.
