Cocktails with a Curator: Turner's 'Harbor of Dieppe'

May 8, 2020

In this episode of "Cocktails with a Curator," Xavier F. Salomon, Peter Jay Sharp Chief Curator, discusses the French port city depicted in J. M. W. Turner's painting “Harbor of Dieppe: Changement de Domicile,” and how the artist’s extensive travel throughout Europe helped to develop his affinity for harbors. The complementary cocktail is the Widow's Kiss, a French drink traditionally given to women who had lost their husbands at sea.
