Catalogue entry

This sketch looks across the Ponte Suza at Aosta, with the Grand Combin in the distance. Turner sketched the same material from slightly differing viewpoints, in this sketchbook (D29338; Turner Bequest CCXCIV 67) and on a larger scale elsewhere (Tate D34888; Turner Bequest CCCXLIV 394).
