Richard Wagner and JMW Turner were both fascinated by the view of Lake Lucerne from Brunnen. Turner painted it many times, Wagner wanted to build a house there, and also stage his Ring des Nibelungen on a stage to be constructed on the lake. Turner's watercolours can give us an impression of the real-life stage backdrop that Wagner wanted for his tetralogy.
