After Turner  -  Thumbnails preview

‘Britannia needs no bulwarks / No towers along the steep; / Her march is o'er the mountain wave, / Her home is on the deep.’ Thomas Campbell

Two hundred and forty years ago was born one of the most prominent English painters: William Turner, who marked not only art of his time but also whole British art up to the present day. John Ruskin, who was a staunchest supporter of the painter, repeatedly emphasized that the British history and landscape create inseparable relationship in the artworks of Turner. Therefore, one should ask what contemporary landscape painting tells about modern times.

Although the fascination of the History and the landscape intertwines in the contemporary painting as in the days of Turner, the British landscape is perceived differently than in last centuries, it expresses more uncertainty about the future and the cultural identity. One has to ask, if uncertainty and amazement is not the source of wisdom?
