Two Upcoming Tours

Tour: Turner Watercolours

Description: The National Gallery of Ireland received a bequest of 31 beautiful watercolours by J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851) from English collector Henry Vaughan in 1900. One of the conditions of the bequest was that they are only to be displayed in the month of January. These fascinating paintings demonstrate the fluidity and confidence of Turner’s style and they vibrancy of his palette.
