This major new exhibition of works by JMW Turner, one of the most renowned of English Romantic artists, explores his transformation from an architectural draughtsman, when he set out on his first North of England tour in 1797, to a poet of the landscape sublime, which culminated in the arrival at his most northerly point in England, the village of Norham in Northumberland.
Located within Berwick Barracks, it is home to the stunning Berwick Burrell Collection of art & ceramics plus historical town artefacts. Open Easter-October and school holidays - check website for dates.
