I am delighted to announce that SublimeSites is now sponsored by the Pilkington Anglo-Japanese Cultural Foundation.
Their mission is the Promotion of UK culture in Japan and promotion of Japanese culture in the UK through publications, exchange exhibitions and research projects. Please visit their website at:
The Foundation has made a grant to SublimeSites to support its topographic research; specifically (in the first instance) into the topography of Turner’s painting of Rome from Mount Aventine (see article of 22 January). I am planning a research trip in April to visit the site and take some photographs from Turner’s exact viewpoint. Watch this space!
