Enjoy focused time in the Kimbell Art Museum's major exhibition, "Turner's Modern World"

Called "a roaring, wonderous whirlpool of a show" (The Guardian), "Turner's Modern World" presents the astonishing paintings of J.M.W. Turner (1775 - 1851), one of Britain's greatest artists.

The exhibition explores Turner's lifelong interest in the inventions, events, politics, society, culture, and science of his time, which resulted in many of his most original works and transformed his way of painting. Organized by Tate Britain, the exhibition features oils and watercolors from the Tate and other British lenders, as well as paintings from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Yale Center for British Art.
