In around 1809 JMW Turner began visiting Petworth House in Sussex which, in the hands of Lord Egremont, became a postively bohemian community of artists. Today we'll re-imagine life at Petworth in the early 19th century, who was there and what they were up to; and explore the daring works of art Turner himself painted whilst in residence as he experimented with representations of light and colour.
