The current exhibit at the De Young Museum is a rare opportunity to see a total of 60 magnificent works by J.M.W. Turner.
This exhibit will be there until September 20th.
(Worth the effort to go into San Francisco)!

Great! I was lucky to see an exhibit of his at the Nat’l. Gallery a few years ago. Such an inspiration. Went to the Met with a visiting friend and we saw the China: Through the Looking Glass exhibit in the costume institute and in the other Chinese galleries. It was a mind blower, a Chinese movie director was the art director.. Film, costume. Overwhelmingly stunning.
Thank you for your letting me know about the Met exhibit. Would love to post your stunning photo next,
This is indeed a fantastic exhibit. From the de Young website, I had no idea the size of the show – I still have to go back for another viewing!
Hope to see you in Berkeley in January, Bruce
I also plan to go back for a second viewing and wanted to urge others to do the same, but did not want to be too pushy, often getting there once is a great accomplishment.
Looking forward to your next course. Please send info. So I can share it with readers.
I’ve been to the Turner exhibit — fantastic! I also watched the movie “Mr. Turner,” before going to the exhibit. It definitely enhanced my appreciation of him.
Thanks, PL >
Dio you recommend seeing the movie as well?
Thank you for your comment.
Yes — I highly recommend seeing Mr. Turner. It’s a great movie!
