Turner was a young artist when he traveled to France and Switzerland in 1802. Tate curator David Blayney Brown suggests that his tour to the Alps was “arguably the formative experience of his life.” He returned with voluminous sketchbooks, which became the basis for later finished work, including this watercolor of Reichenbach Falls; the 820-foot cascade where Sir Arthur Conan Doyle would set the final showdown between Holmes and Moriarty. The composition is arranged so that the eye follows the waterfall down the mountain, then bounces along the path of the rainbow, much as the waters themselves tumble upon the seven steps of the cascade.
