  • Booking essential

Join us for a Turner Art Escape at Petworth House and the exhibition Frank Auerbach: Unseen at a local gallery.

Experience the incredible work of landscape painter J.M.W. Turner (1775 – 1851) during this late opening of Petworth House. Turner was a regular guest of the 3rd Earl of Egremont and you can see 19 of his paintings on display here, including specifically commissioned works of Petworth Park that are framed by exquisite Grinling Gibbons carvings. Admire the artwork then, look out of the windows to appreciate the very view Turner painted, as the music of a String duo fills the State Rooms. Highlight talks on Turner will be available during the evening, along with a free welcome drink on arrival and a pay-for bar.

For this event we have partnered with Newlands Gallery in Petworth town who are currently hosting the Frank Auerbach: Unseen exhibition, an artist who was inspired by Turner. Your ticket will give you admission to the Petworth Late on Friday 1st July, and admission to the Frank Auerbach exhibition at a time of your choice during their regular opening hours.

‘Frank Auerbach: Unseen’ will explore the evolution of the contemporary painter’s practice with a collection of over 65 works, including nine paintings, etchings, drawings and Drypoint prints. The exhibition runs until 14th August.
