E.M.J Warren, Chillon Castle Lake Geneva -Late 19th-century watercolour painting

An original late 19th-century watercolour painting, E.M.J. Warren Chillon Castle, Lake Geneva.

A tranquil view across the water at dusk, in a dramatic colour palette. Chillon Castle, a medieval fortress on the banks of Lake Geneva, Switzerland, became particularly famous in the 19th century after Lord Byron was inspired to pen his poem 'The Prisoner of Chillon' in 1816. With structures dating back to the twelfth century, Chillon is today considered to be one of the most visited castles in Europe.
