2 October 2011–8 January 2012
From 2 October 2011, Museum de Fundatie in Zwolle (The Netherlands) will present the exhibition More light. The starting point of More light is a painting by William Turner from the Fundatie collection, unique to the Netherlands. This canvas of a shimmering sky above rough seas was the stimulus in examining the extent to which the sublime, which first climaxed around Romantic artists such as Turner and Caspar David Friedrich, still applies to contemporary art.
