J.M.W. Turner's designs for Sir Walter Scott go on display

The first exhibition in the newly restored Turner's House Museum in Twickenham will focus on the partnership between J.M.W. Turner, and the author and poet, Sir Walter Scott.

The painter created a series of illustrations to go with Scott's works, and the new showcase explores their final collaboration, as well as Turner's interest in the rise of Napoleon.

'Miniature Lands of Myth and Memory' is on at Turner's House in Twickenham.
