AN exhibition in Salisbury Museum this year will throw new light on the earliest work of JMW Turner.
Turner first visited Salisbury in 1795 – when he was 20 – and later returned to paint an area that captivated him as an artist.
His depictions of Stonehenge in particular proved to be among his most atmospheric works, and he produced a series of watercolours of Salisbury.
The exhibition – which runs from May 22 to September 27 – will also chart Turner’s fascination with the wider Wessex region – including the area of Wiltshire around Salisbury, and the Dorset coast.
