In 1838, Clarkson Stanfield published his Sketches on the Moselle, the Rhine and the Meuse. This book, with its thirty large lithographs of Belgium and Germany, made Turner long to revisit these countries. He therefore made a second tour of the Meuse and Mosel, following a route similar to that taken on his first tourin 1824, but studying the rivers and their neighbourhoods far more closely than he had done earlier. Had all these gouache scenes been engraved and published, they would have probably been a great success, but sadly this never happened.
