The Dordrecht Museum in the Netherlands has organised the permanent loan of a painting of Whalley Bridge and Abbey by J.M.W. Turner. The picture was purchased at Sotheby's last year by a private collector who has in turn arranged the loan with the museum. Interestingly, the museum will be hanging the piece next to works by Aelbert Cuyp (1620-1691), an artist whose lighting effects and compositions Turner greatly admired. This will be one of two paintings by the British artist on display in a Dutch museum or gallery.
