One of the most highly anticipated art exhibitions to open this fall is “J.M.W. Turner: Watercolors From Tate,” comprising 90 works by the British artist – including paintings that have never been shown on the side of the Atlantic. And Mystic Seaport has got them.
Jilly Dyson has “sailed” the world on her marine paintings, whose swirling impasto evokes both Winslow Homer and J.M.W. Turner. I caught up with her on a beautiful fall day aboard SeaFair, the mega-yacht venue for exhibits and dining, when it was docked in Greenwich.
