“He rose beyond and above all of his beginnings and created a truly influential body of work, and more influential, I would say, than any other British artist of his time,” said the deputy director. of the museum, George TM Shackelford. “We really focus on modern day people and places.”

In Turner’s Modern World, the 18th and 19th century artist explored ways to make the events of his time more modern through his art. The exhibition will be on display at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston from March 27 to July 10.

“This session is divided into five sections, and it’s sort of chronological in the sense that we start with his very early work in the first gallery and end with his very last work in the last gallery,” Shackelford said.
