Turner’s Relationship To The Sun In Paintings Explored In Hampshire Exhibition

The sun appears in many different guises in Turner’s work. Sometimes it is something very natural and elemental, at others, it is more mysterious and mystical. Turner was working in an era when the sun – what it was, what it was made of and the source of its power – was still a source of mystery and wonder.
