Drawing from a Turner original in the Prints and Drawings Room at Tate Britain

The fifty-eight artists participating in the ‘Drawing from Turner’ project were able to choose from a representative group of thirty-five drawings chosen from amongst the thousands available in the Turner Bequest

Each artist working on the project chose a Turner drawing which interested them in some respect and was requested to analyse their chosen work through visual means in order to learn something from the great master. Whilst the results were varied in their approach and finished product, all the artists shared a common enjoyment and interest in the actual experience of the project.
