    Late Turner: Painting Set Free at Tate Britain, SW1

    An excellent review of the visionary artist’s late years from 1835, at the ripe age of 60, until his death in 1851; detailing a period of heightened creativity for Turner, and his thirst for innovation, with an eye to the past. The exhibition is a definite crowd pleaser. But, back in the day, Turner had the critics up in arms by pushing the boundaries of painting towards abstraction. This is an unmissable opportunity to see his late works up close, while they shed light on his inscrutable character: I was awestruck by the sublime ‘Sunset with Sea Monsters’(1845), moved by the tragic ‘A Disaster at Sea’ (1835) and rather appalled at the series of Whaling pictures (1845-6). Ends 25 January 2015.
