Regarded as Britain's finest practitioner of watercolor, J. M. W. Turner lived and worked at the peak of the industrial revolution, a period of unrest and transformation. He redefined the medium to capture on paper the world around him. In this program, paper conservators and curators take advantage of extraordinary loans of watercolors to "Turner's Modern World" to explore examples from the most abbreviated of sketches to highly finished masterworks. Co-organized by Curators Circles: Conservation and Collections, Prints and Drawings, and Swan Society.
