In 1966 an exhibition at New York's Museum of Modern Art grabbed the headlines. The artist was an unusual one to find in a modern art gallery: JMW Turner. While that exhibition's presentation of Turner as an influence on Abstract Expressionism is contentious, it succeeded both in presenting his work in a contemporary context and in introducing him to a new audience. In a similar spirit, Turner Monet Twombly argues the modernity of both Turner and Monet, while revealing the centrality of classical themes in the work of one of the twentieth century's greatest artists, the American abstract painter Cy Twombly (1928-2011). Monet's interest in Turner is well documented; Twombly's passion for both artists less so. Focusing on each artists' later paintings, marked in all three cases by strong colour and an intensity and confidence borne of age, author Jeremy Lewison highlights interests and themes they share, despite the differences in time and geography that separated them. These include Romanticism, the sublime, memory and mourning; and in Turner and Twombly's cases, an interest in myth, classicism and the landscape of Italy.

Extensively and beautifully illustrated, this major survey sheds new light on the achievements of three of the greatest artists of the past 200 years, never presented together before. Lewison's insightful text also make wider points about inspiration and the nature of so-called 'late style': a combination of physical changes to the artist's body, a preoccupation with posterity and a growing sense of the diminishment of time.

Jeremy Lewison is a freelance curator and art consultant and the author of Moore and Looking at Barnet Newman
