Mr Turner and his Queen Anne Street Gallery

Following on from my blog on the new Mr Turner film, I thought you might like to have a look at this really interesting little behind-the-scenes film. 

In it, director Mike Leigh and Timothy Spall (who plays Turner) show how they painstakingly brought Turner to life for the big screen.  In this short video, they focus on how they recreated Turner’s Queen Street Gallery, and I really recommend it if you have 15 minutes to spare.

It's an accompaniment both to the film, and to the major Tate Britain exhibition Late Turner, as well as an interesting look at Turner's techniques in action.
