Art Exhibition: Turner in Bridport


29 June to end of September 2019

A special exhibition which includes the loan of J.M.W. Turner’s watercolour of Bridport Harbour from Bury Art Museum in Lancashire.

One day in the early 1800s, one of the greatest painters that this country has ever produced, visited Bridport Harbour. In a small sketchbook, he captured the now iconic Jurassic Coast cliffs, and a ship being pulled ashore using Bridport rope.

A century later, one man spent many days in London at the National Gallery, carefully analysing and copying many of Turner’s paintings. Captain Alfred Percy Codd later gifted those paintings to Bridport Museum, which he founded in 1932.

Now in 2019 we have been able to bring Turner’s painting home, and to display it alongside many of Codd’s copies to form our summer exhibition.
