About this event

Almost 90 artworks by the English artist J.M.W. Turner are on display in Ireland for the first time in this exhibition of works from Tate’s impressive collection. Devised by world-renowned Turner scholar David Blayney Brown, Turner: The Sun is God explores the artist’s fascination with the vast, humbling forces of nature as well as with the sun, moon and clouds.

Curated by Niamh MacNally this is an unmissable opportunity to view the work of one of the greatest painters of the Romantic period, the exhibition features oil paintings as well as an array of watercolours. From light and atmosphere to the luminous sublime, this selection of works showcases Turner’s artistic innovations alongside his mastery of light, colour and atmosphere.

The RHA Friends are required to buy their tickets for the Turner exhibition on the day.  Friends Co-ordinator Michelle Considine will assist with this on the day.

Turner Tickets must be bought by the RHA Friends - €10.80 full price // €9 senior // €7.20 student // Free if you are a NGI Friend // The tour is free of charge for the RHA Friends.
