Franny Moyle looks at Turner's interest in scale, his 'all seeing eye', and how this relates to his world view. Taking a number of paintings executed during the 'Sandycombe Years' she will invite those joining the talk to look again at Turner's work, to consider how he uses scale to express sublime beauty, what there is to discover in looking closely at the detail of his work, and how this may relate to his own spiritual beliefs.
Franny Moyle is a writer, lecturer and broadcaster whose biography of Turner, The Extraordinary Life and Momentous Times of JMW Turner was published in 2016 to critical acclaim. She is a trustee of Turner's House.
