J.M.W. Turner, the world famous English painter, travelled around Switzerland several times in search of spectacular motifs. While doing so, he visited Lucerne repeatedly to study the unique interplay of light and weather, lake and mountains there. He captured his impressions in sketches and vibrant watercolours.
These observations and depictions both of the sea, during his crossing to the continent, and of the alps were of major importance for Turner, in them the beauty and dangers of nature combine directly with the theme of the sublime, which was of fundamental significance for Romanticism.
