About Norham Castle, Sunrise

Joseph Mallord William Turner’s “Norham Castle: Sunrise” is an unfinished painting showcasing the artist’s experimentation with composition and coloring. The painting depicts Norham Castle, located in Northumberland, on the English side of the border with Scotland. Turner first saw Norham castle in 1797 and returned in 1801 and 1831, creating work after each visit. This particular piece is one of the culmination points of his artistic liberation undertaken by Turner in the 1830s.

The artwork belongs to the Tate Britain collection.
