I was dragging my feet a bit going to see the late Turner exhibition. Last time I went to a Turner exhibition at the Tate I found it overwhelming, too much of the same. I get a bit tired of the blockbuster exhibition thing.
[I did see an interesting exhibition in the Tate Liverpool – Turner, Monet and Twombly. Found a lot of exciting correspondences between Turner and Twombly.)
Enjoyed paintings but again drawings great – heavy lines.- liked life drawing in particular. His paintings used very thick application of paint.
More and more I find artists’ drawings most interesting when they are displayed.

Didn’t interest me at all. I would like to discuss my feelings about this.
