The Turner Contemporary is an art gallery in Margate, Kent, intended as a contemporary arts space and catalyst for the regeneration of the town. Which is so badly needed.
The title commemorates the association of the town with noted landscape painter J. M. W. Turner, who went to school there, and visited throughout his life. According to Turner, the loveliest skies in Europe are to be found in Margate.
A very nice b/w. I love how you have included the sea connecting even more to the famous painter.
Ahhh Turner, some of his paintings show Swiss landscapes too, especially from the Luzern area. They had a Turner exhibition in Luzern called "Das Meer und die Alpen" (the Sea and the Alps) which ended in October of this year. I did not go but I visited the Exhibiton in Dublin in January 2019. Only once a year in January they show his work in this particular museum. Maybe I show an image, would be fun to share this on PF, twice a Turner :-)
Oh yes I can understand that a museum might attract new visitors and espeically with a name like Turner. Do they suffer from Brexit?
Have a great weekend.
Everlasting (2019/11/09 10:43:06): Hi Barbara, In my opinion everyone will suffer from Brexit, but of course many would disagree with me. But places such as Margate have suffered badly from lack of investment and austerity cuts by the government. over the past decade. I am not getting on any political soap-box here, but I will post later ( tomorrow I leave for a work-week in Washington) a short series of street photography from Margate and you can make your own mind up.
Have a nice weekend!
