It’s been announced that JMW Turner will be on the new £20 note, along with his painting of The Fighting Temeraire…

.

We suspect there was a sigh of relief chez English Heritage. It must have crossed their minds Turner’s famous view of Stonehenge might have been selected, to their eternal embarrassment…

Yes, that view, the very one they’re lobbying hard to have hidden forever from millions of travelers – unless they pay them very nearly £20 each!  [Of course, there’s always the thought that the Turner view of Stonehenge WAS under consideration for the new banknote but was vetoed! That would mean they’d hidden it from the public twice!]
