Turner, Monet, Twombly: Later Paintings, an exhibition devised and installed by Jeremy Lewison, opened at Moderna Museet, Stockholm on 8 October and closed on 15 January 2012. It was attended by 255,000 visitors and over 7,000 catalogues were sold. The exhibition was subsequently shown at Staatsgalerie Stuttgart where it attracted 147,000 visitors. It opens 23 June at Tate Liverpool. Two principles underlie the exhibition: that Romanticism did not die in the nineteenth century but continues to be relevant to today’s artists; that what preoccupies artists in old age in 1850 is broadly similar, in human terms, to what preoccupies older artists in 2012.
