Catalogue entry

This is the right half of a double-page spread continued to the right from folio 62 (D10982), opposite, recording the same building (presumably) as appears on the recto (D10980). The sketch is inverted in relation to the main sequence, which might indicate that it was added somewhere towards the later part of Turner’s itinerary.
