Fußweg in Richtung Oberwesel

Footpath in the direction of Oberwesel, looking towards the Lorelei

 

The watercolour shows the Lorelei rock again from a different perspective.  This time Turner looks upstream in the direction of Oberwesel and shows only part of the Lorelei rock.  By doing so, Turner leaves it to the viewer to imagine the true scale and grandeur of the Lorelei – an artistic device that he used many times in his works.  On the left of the painting we see the towpath with several people on it. This is the same path Turner walks along to reach Bingen.  On the right bank of the Rhine travellers were forced to take the route over the hills.
