This Laing Art Gallery publication celebrates J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851), one of Britain's best-loved artists. It spotlights The Fighting Temeraire, on display in the northeast for the first time in 2024 as part of the National Gallery's 200th birthday celebrations.

 

This famous depiction of a warship being towed along the Thames towards the scrapyard by a modern steamboat reflects the transformative effects of the Industrial Revolution, a starting point for exploring Turner's art in relation to Tyneside's industrial and artistic heritage.
