Turner had a lifelong fascination with the sea. Most of the paintings in this display are apparently incomplete canvases found in Turner’s studio following his death, not exhibited during his lifetime and mostly unseen by his contemporaries. The paintings range from oil sketches made with finished marine compositions in mind to more experimental late works concerned with capturing the movement and nature of the sea itself.
