What you can see

The world’s largest collection of paintings by one of Britain’s most celebrated artists, J.M.W. Turner, has been rejoined by Mark Rothko’s Seagram murals.

Intended as objects of contemplation, these nine abstract paintings were donated to Tate by the artist due to his deep affection for British art, especially Turner.

There will also be an opportunity to see Steve McQueen’s Year 3 and from the Spotlight display, Edward Allington and Pablo Bronstein.

Artwork Highlights

Many of Turner’s major work can be seen in the exhibition, Turner's Modern World.
