William Turner - Standort 14 | St. Goar

On the towpath, looking towards the LoreleiComing

from the direction of St. Goar, we encounter this view of the Loreley

rock. Turner painted the legendary rock formation from seven different

positions and left behind a considerably larger number of sketches of

this exceptional landmark. Two more works originated only a few hundred

metres from this point in the direction of Oberwesel. Once again, in

this watercolour we see Turner’s tendency to dramatize the landscape.

He makes the mountains more impressive by portraying them as higher and

more rugged than they really are.
