Explore Turner’s Bequest at Tate Britain with Nick Pearson from the comfort of your sofa.

Wednesday 31 March


In this virtual tour you’ll see the largest collection in the world of arguably Britain’s greatest painter.

You’ll learn about a wide selection of the works on show at Tate Britain. During the tour you can trace the influences and development of this intense, original and influential artist. Did you know that Turner did his best and most memorable work when he was in his sixties?

You have to explore Turner’s Bequest at Tate Britain via Zoom. If you have not used Zoom before, Nick can show you how to download and use the program.

Nick runs the tour from his studio and uses the wall as his projector screen. You’ll be able to see the images but if you want to see them clearly, please use the handout with high resolution images. Nick sends you the handout when you have booked your place. After the tour Nick sends you his lecture notes.

The price for the two-hour virtual tour and notes is £20 per person. If two of you join the tour and share a computer screen, the price is £30 for you both. You can pay Nick via bank transfer or cheque. He will send you the details.
