Turner in Provence

Abstract : In the exhibition's catalogue "Turner and colour" (Hôtel Camont-centre d'art, Aix en-Provence, 2016), the author analize Turner’s itineraries in Provence during his travels between London and Italy, using the sketchbooks the painter filled up all along the way. Il the number and the date of the travels is still being discussed today, the skeches show how the painter needs to approach the reality and the new landscapes, and the watercolours he painted in Marseilles and Genoa give a perfect illustration of the central theme of the exhibition: the progressive invasion of Turner's works by colour.
