Posted on 21 February 2018

Explore the 'Turner and the Whale' exhibition that recently closed at Hull Maritime Museum!

There are some wonderful resources available via the multi-media History of Art Research Portal which will allow you to explore the exhibition with informative notes on each art work, view scrimshaw in 3D and listen to a whaling soundscape.  You can also view selections from the Hull Maritime Museum Whaling Collection and read position papers from the one-day international and interdisciplinary symposium which considered key images and objects from the exhibition and the Hull collections.
