Turner exhibited at the Tib Lane Gallery in 1962 and 1968 and his relationship with the gallery is covered in the book William Ralph Turner, written by Stuart Archer and Bill Clark in 2010. Turner was a great admirer of Adolphe Valette, so it's no surprise he bought the Barton Bridge painting in this first exhibition. He also owned a small Valette Study of Albert Square which hung in his house in Congleton.
