One of the most radical and influential artists of the 19th century, Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775–1851), was a giant of British art who produced many of his most important and famous pictures after the age of sixty, in the last fifteen years of his life.

The Exhibit at the Art Gallery of Ontario features more than 50 paintings and works on paper on loan from Tate Britain, J.M.W. Turner: Painting Set Free is the first major exhibition to focus on the final and most experimental phase of the artist’s career. Beginning in 1835 and closing with his last exhibitions at the Royal Academy in 1850, the exhibition explores how Turner’s later years were a time of exceptional energy and vigour.
