Frist Art Museum Auditorium

This free lecture traces the development of one of the Romantic period’s greatest artists, Joseph Mallord William Turne. Active from the 1790’s through the mid-1840’s, his paintings focus primarily on his pursuit of the sublime—the sensation of awe and terror felt when confronted with the extreme forces of nature.
