Turner biographer and curator James Hamilton gives a lecture on how a passionate curiosity about nature underpins Turner's painting of land, sky and sea and examines how the painter's powers of observation found echo in scientific discovery.
James Hamilton's essay 'Turner and the New Understanding of Nature 1800-1850' features in the Turner and the Elements exhibition catalogue, available to buy from the Turner Contemporary shop.
