Organized by the Tate Britain, J.Paul Getty Center and Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco, it is the first time that such a large number of Turner works have been on view on the west coast. This exhibit at the Getty closes May 24th, and will open in San Francisco on June 20th. I highly recommend it!
I am always uplifted by my visits to the Getty... there is an expansiveness about the place, situated as it is on a rise overlooking the city. Here are some views from my day.
