Tate Britain has revamped its popular J.M.W. Turner galleries—an endeavor that involved reinstalling the institution’s illustrious collection and painting some of the walls a rich red that the artist used in his own picture gallery. The 300 works on view at the Tate recently returned from a wildly popular North American tour. Tate Britain is home to nearly 40,000 oil paintings, watercolors, and drawings by Turner.
