Architecture and ambition

This is the first ever exhibition devoted to J M W Turner's drawings and paintings of Salisbury Cathedral, the City and its surroundings. It brings together artworks that have not been seen together since the nineteenth century, created when Turner was a young and ambitious artist and playing a crucial role in his campaign to establish himself as the pre-eminent artist of his generation. This includes part of the commission from Sir Richard Colt Hoare on a series of views of the most important buildings in Salisbury, which were painted by Turner. Architecture and Ambition is set around the young Turner, at a time he was forging his reputation at the Royal Academy in London. He was twenty when he first visited Salisbury in 1795, during a summer in which he also toured the Isle of Wight. And so, this relationship began when Turner was a young man and reveals such formidable talent and ambition. Working with the Turner scholar Ian Warrell, Salisbury Museum have focused on three aspects of Turner's many depictions of the Salisbury area: firstly, his responses to the Cathedral and town, particularly in connection with the commission he received from local antiquarian, Sir Richard Colt Hoare who inherited the large Stourhead Estate in 1785; secondly the series of views of the neo-gothic Fonthill Abbey that he painted for 'England's wealthiest son', the fascinating and eccentric William Beckford; and finally his work recording the area of central, southern England, sometimes known as Wessex, extending over a period of thirty years. Alongside Turner's works from the Museum's collection, this exhibition will include extensive loans from museums and art galleries across the UK including Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, British Museum, Fitzwilliam Museum, National Galleries Scotland, V & A and Whitworth Art Gallery. The exhibition will also be supported by a substantial loan from the Tate collection. The beauty and brilliance of these precise masterpieces epitomize perfection in architecture and landscapes. These are fundamentals that are very close to our own hearts at Winkworth Salisbury, and consequently we are proud indeed to be bringing Turner back to Salisbury. Turner's Wessex, Architecture and Ambition at The Salisbury Museum until 27 September. Winkworth Salisbury See things differently
