Abstract:Drawing from Turner , 6 November 2006-20 May 2007, Tate Britain. Drawing From Turner was a collaborative project and exhibition jointly organised by Tate Britain and the University of the Arts London. The display included the drawings of 30 contemporary artists displayed in conjunction with the original Turners from which they worked. The thirty-five Turner drawings that became the subject of this project form a small but representative selection from the thousands of items in the Turner Bequest, the contents of the artist’s studio bequeathed to the nation on his death in 1851 and now housed in the Clore Gallery at Tate Britain. From the briefest pencil sketches to fully worked up landscape studies, these drawings provide a unique insight in the working methods and techniques of a great artist, almost as good as looking over his shoulder as he worked. Each artist working on the project chose a Turner drawing which interested them in some respect and was requested to analyse their chosen work through visual means in order to learn something from the great master. Whilst the results were varied in their approach and finished product, all the artists shared a common enjoyment and interest in the actual experience of the project. Throughout the project the word copy was avoided and instead participants were asked to think forensically about their chosen drawing by examining and not simply following in Turner’s footsteps. In doing so, Drawing from Turner aims to improve understanding of the process of learning to draw by making drawings from fine examples. A collaborative project and exhibition jointly organised by Nicola Moorby, Collections Registrar - Prints and Drawings Tate Britain and Stephen Farthing, Rootstein Hopkins Research Professor in Drawing, the University of the Arts London, with assistance from Dr Maryanne Martin, Department of Experimental Psychology, the University of Oxford and Rebecca Man, Research Assistant, University of the Arts London.
