See notes to D04875; Turner Bequest LXXIX A for Turner’s series of five large drawings of the Rhine and Rhinefall at Schaffhausen, made as he followed the river below the falls. Here, he is positioned below Laufen Castle, near the landing stage for the ferry which crossed the river; the falls are to the left. As noted under D04875, this drawing is reminiscent of P.J. de Loutherbourg’s frontal view of the falls painted in 1788 (Victoria and Albert Museum, London).
For the paper and preparation see D04875.
