Celebrate Turner’s fascination with the Middle Rhine, which he visited ten times between 1817 and 1844. On his first sketching trip he passed medieval fortresses devastated by the wars that followed the Reformation and blackened by the sieges of Napoleon’s troops. He saw fairytale castles, picturesque villages and magnificent cities founded by the Romans and enjoyed breathtaking scenery along the Rhine Gorge, where travellers saluted the legendary sirens with pistol shots and hunting horns. Relive his experiences with our expert guest speaker, Gerald Deslandes.
