This print shows the landscape surrounding Kilchurn Castle, with the Cruchan Ben Mountains in the background.
The image is a watercolour and was painted shortly after Turner's tour of Scotland in 1801. The experience of mountain scenery was important for an artist seeking landscape subjects that evoked the Sublime (the 18th-century philosophical theory that the experience of vastness takes the human mind beyond its normal register). Turner's employment of geology and atmospherics is brilliantly on display here, demonstrating how he revolutionised watercolour painting. Watercolour on paper by Turner, Joseph Mallord William.
