J.M.W. Turner: Fire at the Tower of London

1 April 2014

Abstract

New research has solved the mystery about J.M.W. Turner’s watercolour sketches, which were previously thought to show the notorious fire of 1834 at the Houses of Parliament. As cataloguer Matthew Imms explains, contemporary images point to a different fire, which consumed the Grand Storehouse of the Tower of London in October 1841.
