About

Encounter a little known and rarely seen side of Britain's greatest artist.

Loved as the master of landscapes and seascapes such as The Fighting Temeraire, Hannibal Crossing the Alps and Norham Castle, few know that Turner's sketchbooks also contain depictions of the female form.

Yet Turner was a compulsive recorder of his life and travels, and produced drawings and watercolours of models, sexual encounters, literary fantasies, and his lovers such as Sophia Booth.

This small-scale exhibition is one of the first to look at Turner's engagement with the naked female form, specifically within intimate and erotic contexts and provides invaluable insight into the man, and his attitude to and relationship with women.

This exhibition is possible thanks to a generous loan from Tate.

Entrance to the exhibition is included with tickets to the house.

Parental or guardian discretion is advised.

The exhibition is on the first floor and is reached via a narrow staircase of around 18 steps. Unfortunately, no lift facilities are available. The ground floor of the house is fully accessible, and a tablet device will be available for a virtual visit to the first floor and basement.

Too busy in the day to make it to Between the Sheets? Throughout the exhibition, Turner's House are offering Late Views, on Friday nights. A perfect way to end the week, or start the weekend.
