Turner and the Masters
Exhibition: 23rd Sep 2009 to 24th Jan 2010
Turner and the Masters will juxtapose Turner's greatest paintings alongside works by old masters and contemporaries that he hoped to imitate, rival and surpass.

It will be the first exhibition to explore how Turner's responses to other artists were both acts of homage and a sophisticated form of art criticism, designed to demonstrate his understanding of great art and his ability to equal and even outshine the most celebrated exponents of the landscape tradition.

Featuring around 100 works the exhibition will include paintings by Claude, Canaletto, Ruisdael, Van de Velde, Poussin, Rubens, Rembrandt, Constable, Bonington and many others known by Turner at first hand. It will reveal the artist's debts and rivalries in an exciting and often unpredictable way and will re-establish Turner's reputation as the greatest painter of landscape in the European tradition.
