The Alps are the biggest mountain range in Europe. The folded ridges of the European Alps were made by the African tectonic plate moving toward Europe and pushing up huge chunks of land. Mont Blanc is the highest peak in the Alps at 15, ft (4, m), but since its summit is a dome of ice its height varies from year to year. Other essays explore Turner's role as the forerunner of modernism and reflect on the relationship between the artist and travel. Bringing together the symphony of colors that composed Turner's view of Switzerland's awe-inspiring landscapes, this book sheds new light on the artist's vision of the Alps and the sea.
