Lucerne through Turner's eyes. On Lake Lucerne with the master of English Romanticism.
Joseph Mallord William Turner was fascinated by Switzerland. Searching for subject matter, the master of English Romanticism travelled across Switzerland six times between 1802 and 1844, stopping over in Lucerne on almost every occasion. To celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Lucerne Art Society, his masterpieces have now been put on display by the Museum of Art Lucerne, in the very city that gave rise to their creation.

Lucerne, the sea and the Alps.
Turner's masterpieces are returning to the place where they originated some 200 years ago. The exhibition "Turner. The Sea and the Alps" showcases 100 works from the Tate Gallery collection in London. The focus is on subjects from the Lucerne and Lake Lucerne region. However, Turner's travels in general are also discussed: his crossing the sea and his representation of the Alpine world.
