Past Event Tate Britain Talk

Conservation event: The EY Exhibition: Late Turner – Painting Set Free

11 December 2014 at 13.00–14.30

Join Tate conservator Rebecca Hellen for an illuminating talk on the making and conservation of Turner's delicate oil paintings.

This event offers a rare opportunity to learn about the making of Turner’s fragile and delicate oil paintings, the innovative methods and materials he used,  and the consequences these have had for the appearance of these paintings, and even their survival.

Join Tate conservator Rebecca Hellen for an illuminating talk on the late Turner oils investigated and treated for The EY Exhibition: Late Turner – Painting Set Free, and Tate Conservation Scientist Dr Joyce Townsend for a fascinating insight into Turner’s paintbox and the other contents of Turner’s studio, preserved at Tate as part of the Turner Bequest. These materials are a unique survival for British art, and illustrate Turner’s lifelong commitment to experimenting with new painting materials.
