Turner and Heidelberg: A second Pilkington Foundation Commission

I am pleased to report that Sublimesites has received a second commission from the Pilkington Anglo-Japanese Cultural Foundation. This will fund site research in May into the topography of a wonderful later painting by Turner of Heidelberg.

I have always loved the extraordinary crowd, gathered as if at some prototype of Glastonbury to celebrate a great solstial event. More recently it has occurred to me that the topography requires some serious consideration. It may all turn out to be rather deeper than anyone has hitherto suspected! More (potentially much more) anon..
