William Turner - Standort 06 | Boppard


in the town






From the riverbank at Boppard Turner

produces quick sketches of the day-to-day work of people on the river.  With great enthusiasm the artist captures characteristic

features of the town wall and records his impressions of the picturesque

buildings.  In this watercolour, a sturdy

town tower and the adjacent wall provide the backdrop for the bustling activity

around a boat that is anchored there.  In

the background we see the “twin towers” of the Church of St. Severus.  This painting is an impressive example of how

Turner combines different perspectives (river scene and town view).
