Here Turner records views on the Moselle between the villages of Hatzenport and Löf. In the second sketch from the top the artist makes note of the ‘Ferry’ service which has been running from Hatzenport since the sixteenth century.1 A brick tower called the Fähreturm was constructed in the 1860s to mark the village’s ferry terminal.2 Löf is depicted in the central and two lower views, with the ancient Burg Thurandt pictured from a considerable distance in the sketch at rear (see also Tate D19806–D19809; Turner Bequest CCXVI 128–129a).
