William Turner - Standort 06 | Boppard

Buildings 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).
