Turner: Northern Exposure at the Granary Gallery in Berwick-upon-Tweed is a major new exhibition of works by one of the most renowned English Romantic artists. In 1797 J.M.W. Turner undertook the first of many tours of the north of England, journeys which transformed him from an architectural draughtsman to a poet of the landscape. The exhibition includes twelve colour studies which represent the entire route of Turner’s 1797 tour. On loan from the Tate, they are displayed alongside two of his sketchbooks of the River Tweed and lakes of the north of England.
