The Tate Britain-organized “J. M. W. Turner: Painting Set Free” will travel to the Getty Center next year, running Feb. 24 to May 24, 2015, and then to the De Young Museum, San Francisco. There was a big Turner show not so long ago (2007-8), but it didn’t come to the West Coast. “Painting Set Free” will focus on the artist’s late period (1835-50). Coincidentally, the Getty exhibition will overlap with LACMA’s showing of a famous French Romantic painting, Delacroix’s Greece Expiring on the Ruins of Missolonghi.
