Turner at ARoS, an art museum in Aarhus

My last post was about the area in Aarhus that once was one of the barracks in Aarhus. Now a centre for culture, concerts and art exhibitions.

ARoS is a spectacular building with a glass roof ring, a piece of art by Danish/ Icelandish Olafur Elisson.

Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851) was far ahead of his time.

I can’t believe how prescient he was. He was painting what he saw, and that was before Impressionism

James Turrell, 2002

As a young person staying in England and visiting London in 1970, I found J.M.W.Turner at Tate Gallery. His art made a lifelong impression on me.
