Franny Moyle-The Extraordinary Life and Momentous Times of JMW Turner
Saturday 6th May, 12:30pm - 1:30pm
Turner’s luminous, light-filled landscapes are still amongst the nation’s most popular work, but little is known about the man behind the canvas – his fractured family life and the emotional double life he lead in his later years. In this biography, we see Turner striding like a colossus across turbulent times riven by war and the industrial revolution, revealing through his paintings the stresses and spirit of the age.
The film, Mr Turner, is showing at the Forum Cinema at 5pm.
