Ruskin, Turner & the Storm Cloud: Watercolours and Drawings
Fri Mar 29 @ 10.00 am - Sun Jun 23 @ 5.00 pmIncluded with general admission
Ruskin, Turner & the Storm Cloud: Watercolours and Drawings is a major new exhibition to mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of artist and art critic John Ruskin.
It will consider Ruskin’s relationship with Turner, as well as his concerns about the environment and well-being, which were prominent themes in his work and writings.
New research, new commissions and an exhibition book will also explore these themes through multiple lenses, as we bring together the new research of artists, climate change scientists, art historians and curators.
This partnership exhibition between York Art Gallery and Abbot Hall Art Gallery, Kendal, Cumbria, will show their Turner and Ruskin collections together for the first time, complemented by substantial loans from national and regional collections.
After York Art Gallery, the exhibition will also be on display at Abbot Hall Art Gallery from July 11 to October 5 2019
