The German artist Kurt Schwitters spent the last two and a half years of his life in the English Lake District. Despite illness and poverty, it was an intensely productive period for the artist. This paper discusses Schwitters' creative engagement with the natural environment during this period and considers the ways in which his interest in the landscape around him was expressed through his creative output at that time.
