JMW Turner's watercolour Ullswater, Cumberland was based on sketches made during his visits to the Lake District. As with many of Turner's landscapes, objective accuracy was sacrificed in favour of an aesthetically pleasing arrangement, rearranging the topography and bathing the landscape in a light more typical of Italy than Cumbria. The painting was a favourite of art critic and thinker John Ruskin.
