Turner nudes on show at the Tate.

UNFINISHED works by JMW Turner will go on show in an exhibition at Tate Britain.

The show will include a series of little-known nudes he painted during a visit to Rome, as well as paintings of Venice, seascapes, oil paintings and sketchbooks.

It is part of a rehang of the Tate's Clore Gallery, which has been dedicated to the artist since it opened 25 years ago, and a complete re-hang of Tate Britain.

The exhibition will also include a room of Turner watercolours chosen by Latvian-American artist Vija Celmins whose work is noted for its near abstract sea and skyscapes.

Turner, who died in 1851, was the most successful British artist of his generation.
