This dramatic almost abstract scene of an avalanche was initially exhibited in 1810. Turner visited the alps in 1802 but there is no evidence that he visited this area or witnessed an avalanche. It is supposed that inspiration for this painting was news of an avalanche at Selva in 1808 which killed 25 people.
