Russian Billionaire pays for Turner exhibition
The Fighting Temeraire by William Turner


      First William Turner exhibition since 1975 in Moscow will be funded by the Russian billionaire and Arsenal FC co-owner Alisher Usmanov.
      
      About one hundred pictures of English painter William Turner will be brought to the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts from the London art Gallery Tate in November this year.
      
      Some generations have changed since the last Turner exhibition in Moscow, that is why its important to show Turner works to the youth, said the vice-president of the Pushkin museum.
      
      The sum spent on the exhibition organization is not disclosed. Alisher Usmanov, according to Forbes, is ranked 91st in the list of the richest people in the world. William Turner is the famous English painter of the beginning of the 19th century.
