      In Focus: Turner, The Piazzetta, Venice

      In this online talk, Christopher Baker, Director of European and Scottish Art and Portraiture, will offer his insight into Turner's The Piazzetta, Venice. Perhaps the most famous and admired of all the Turners in the collection of the National Galleries of Scotland, his dramatic study of Venice is both technically sophisticated and one of the great works of British Romantic art.  The artist’s watercolours continue to provide a perfect escape for armchair travellers.

      This talk will be available from Thursday 4 June via our Friends email newsletter. It is the first in a new series of exclusive online talks as we aim to hold our Friends events programme in a different format this summer.  There will be two talks per month with each remaining available for two weeks so you can choose when you would like to watch them.

      No booking or advance registration is required in order to view these free Friends only talks. The links to view them will be sent out each fortnight as part of our Friends email newsletter. If you have a Friends membership but do not currently receive our Friends email newsletter please contact [email protected] to sign up.
