MW Turner in Tatham & Hornby
2–4pm Sunday, 22 April 2018
Lower Tatham Church, Tatham, Lancaster LA2 8NH
The Friends of St. James the Less invite you to an afternoon with Rhian Addison, former curator at the Whitworth Art Gallery Manchester and currently a freelance curator working between York University & Tate Britain. Rhian will explore how Turner spent his time in Tatham & Hornby to create his idyllic watercolour ‘Hornby Castle, from Tatham Church’ 1816 -1818 now held in The Victoria and Albert Museum.
Using visual analysis & archival records Rhian will consid-er the stylistic features of this work by comparing Turner’s various sketches in his notebooks with his final watercolour and photographs of the present - day landscape. 200 years on, there is much more to this work than meets the eye. Join us at the Church to hear more!
Enjoy light refreshments afterwards
