As a member of the MFA, you’ve shown a passion for art and culture. Member Inside Stories have been created just for you with a fascinating look at the artworks themselves, along with the kind of context that helps you appreciate their power.

In this new series, focus on one of Britain’s greatest artists, J. M. W. Turner, who lived and worked at the peak of the industrial revolution, when steam replaced sail, machine power replaced manpower, and wars, political unrest, and social reforms transformed society. “Turner’s Modern World” explores how this artist developed an innovative painting style to better capture his changing world. His vivid, dramatic compositions demonstrate Turner’s commitment to depicting the great events and developments of his time, from technological advances to causes such as abolition and political reform.

This event will be hosted on Zoom. Attendees will receive the link to join prior to the event.
