The 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: Later Paintings explores the similarities between these artists in style, subject and artistic motivation during the last 20–30 years of their lives.

Turner Monet Twombly: Later Paintings will feature iconic works such as Monet’s fabulous Water Lilies and Turner’s much loved Romantic landscapes. The exhibition will also include a major work from Twombly’s vibrant and well-received series, Blooming: A Scattering of Blossoms and Other Things, 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 is 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
