J. M. W. Turner in San Francisco



I'm on the mailing list for email updates from the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, and while most of the offerings fail to inspire the drive across the state, today's announcement of a summer show entitled J. M. W. Turner: Painting Set Free will very likely do the trick.  I enjoyed the recent Mike Leigh movie, 'Mr. Turner', very much and maybe the 2 appearing in the same year isn't a coincidence.  In any case, the show runs June 20 - September 20 at the de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park.  If anyone would like to make up a group outing to see it, I'll be pleased to join in.

I see that it started at the Tate, and has been at the Getty...and much as I'd love to join you in SF, I'm too booked up between now and September. Do you know if it will visit other museums in the U.S.?

The best part of every trip is realizing that it has upset your expectations
