Tate Campaigns For Turner

The Tate Museum is mounting a campaign to raise money to buy a Turner it wants. “Nicholas Serota, the Tate’s director, described the painting as an extraordinary work of ineffable beauty, which would be of lasting benefit to scholars and visitors if they could secure it for the gallery. Ian Warrell, a curator and Turner expert, added: ‘In terms of the Turners that we would ever want, this is right at the very, very top. This has always been on the list’.”
