On November 17, the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts launched the exhibition Turner. 1775−1851. Visitors have an opportunity to see 40 pictures, 70 water colours and two engravings by the great English artist, the greatest representative of English romantic landscape from the collection of Tate Gallery. Turner’s works were exhibited in Russia more than 20 years ago for the last time. The present exhibition became the most expensive project of the museum and was organized under financial support of Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov.
