BBC: JMW Turner painting goes on display for first time since 1833

BBC: JMW Turner painting goes on display for first time since 1833. “A Turner painting of Malmesbury Abbey in Wiltshire has gone on public display for the first time in nearly 200 years. The watercolour is being shown at the town’s local museum, as part of a scheme to encourage people back to small museums and heritage sites. Other objects going on display around the UK include a 160-million-year-old crocodile, a rare Bronze Age sword and the original Jolly Fisherman painting.”
