    Turner and the Thames: Five Paintings exhibition

    Turner’s House Trust are thrilled to announce their first exhibition of J.M.W. Turner’s original oil paintings in the house he designed for himself. The exhibition will open on January 10th, 2020, thanks to a generous loan from Tate. 

    Turner and the Thames: Five Paintings, will feature rare oil sketches, seldom seen by the public, and run until March 29th at Sandycombe Lodge, 40 Sandycoombe Road, St Margarets, Twickenham TW1 2LR.

    The works have been chosen for their depictions of scenes close to his house near the river, and feature riparian landscapes from Isleworth to Windsor.

    The Thames enticed Turner to buy a plot of land in Twickenham on which to build a retreat for him and his father in the 1800s and he designed the villa so that he could glimpse the river from his bedroom window. Turner spent a lot of time on the Thames both working and fishing, keeping his catch in two ponds in what was then a large, country garden.

    The exhibition is included in the price of general admission to the house..

    World War One Exhbition

    This new exhibition comemorates the end of the First World War and the Returning Soldier.  The Museum has a library of recordings for use on reproducing pianos, and a collection of instruments that were at the height of popularity in the1910s and 1920s.  The music that emerged from the war is sometimes upbeat and incongruous with the tragedy of the period, while other music seeks to evoke the trauma of the front-line.  The exhibition features a local history perspective, a display of music from our collection, and recordings of music from the era played on our instruments.

    Admission to the exhibition is free
