I was not amused by the quantity of fecal matter based paintings. There was also a severe smell of cat urine from the air ducts. I went to the toilet 6 times and each time the hand dryer had not been fixed as there was a cat legs hanging out of the air intake fan.

I loved this- some fabulous Turner paintings but most exquisitely some watercolour sketches which show his amazing draughtmanship. Made me turn back to my own sketchbook- which is what only the best exhibitions do.

Brilliant; well put together and a really interesting narrative. Loved the comparison with contemporary artists and how they motivated the evolution of Turner's work. The last part of the show was particularly exceptional. Well worth a visit, as is the astrophotography show at the nearby Royal Observatory.
