This exhibition has now closed, find out what else is going on at Time and Tide Museum

Explore Great Yarmouth and its coast through the lives and works of Turner, Constable and Cotman.

This exhibition looks at the British masters’ connection with the area and also the relationship between past and present. Paintings, drawings and etchings by JMW Turner, John Constable and John Sell Cotman are displayed alongside social history objects from the museum’s maritime collections.

Both land and sea have changed almost unrecognisably since the early 19th century when trawlers bobbed in the waters and Nelson’s Monument stood in isolated splendour away from buildings.

Young people and community groups have contributed to the curation and design of the show, exploring through art and artefacts the history of the town and the beauty of the coastal landscape that continues to inspire artists.
