The Romantic exhibition in the Clore gallery at Tate Britain shows JMW Turner alongside works from his peers. It is a tribute to the movement, a timeline if you will, spanning from Turner’s student days to the post-Romantic, photographic works of John Riddy. The exhibition amounts to more of an introduction to the movement rather than a comprehensive display, so those more versed in the genre will find it lacking. Most of the pieces have been seen before and there is little novelty in the arrangement. Nevertheless, it cannot be denied that this is a wonderful collection of artworks and there is much here for the uninitiated.

Exhibition runs until 31st July.
