This ambitious exhibition brings together works by J.M.W Turner (1775-1851), Claude Monet (1840-1926) and Cy Twombly (1928-2011), three of the most prolific and well-known artists of all time. Turner Monet Twombly will explore the similarities between these artists in style, subject and artistic motivation.

Featuring iconic works such as Monet’s fabulous Water Lilies and Turner’s much loved romantic landscapes, the exhibition will also showcase Cy Twombly’s recent paintings of blooms, shown in the UK for the first time.

Alongside Turner’s compelling, atmospheric works and the beautiful and emotive art of Monet, Twombly’s original contemporary style adds a fresh and exciting dimension to the exhibition.

For those already familiar with the artists’ work, this exhibition will be a revelation; for new audiences, it is a fascinating introduction. Not to be missed.

The exhibition is organised by Moderna Museet, Stockholm in collaboration with Tate Liverpool and Staatsgalerie Stuttgart. – www.tate.org.uk
