Turner House Trust – New Chair of Trustees
Turner’s House Trust is responsible for managing J.M.W.

Turner’s House Trust would like to thank all the volunteers who have given their time and skills so generously over many years to help us reach the magnificent conclusion of our project to conserve J.M.W. Turner’s house in Twickenham. This very long list includes trustees, Friends of Turner’s House committee, guides, gardeners, stewards and many others. We look forward to adding many more names in the future as the story of Sandycombe Lodge enters a new phase as a small historic house, open to the public. It is a great achievement, and couldn’t have been reached without all your help.
The Turner Society
The Turner Society was founded in 1975 and has members worldwide. It is devoted to furthering the appreciation and understanding of the art of Joseph Mallord William Turner (1775-1851), who was not only Britain’s greatest painter but arguably the finest landscape and marine painter ever. Turner was enormously prolific, producing some 550 oil paintings, over 2,000 highly detailed and finely finished watercolours, and some 30,000 works on paper. His bequest to the nation is without doubt the greatest artistic legacy ever bestowed upon the United Kingdom (it is housed in Tate Britain, London, except for a few key works kept at the National Gallery).
The Society regularly mounts lectures and informal talks given by the world’s leading experts on the painter; it organises out-of-hours viewings of important public exhibitions of his work, as well as visits to the Study Room at Tate Britain where the Turner Bequest works on paper are held; and it arranges trips to see private collections that include works by Turner. In addition, it publishes a fine magazine, Turner Society News, which goes to all members twice a year, and it works tirelessly to deepen awareness of the range and power of Turner’s astonishing genius.
