The drawing continues across folio 80 verso opposite (D14636; Turner Bequest CLXXVI 76a), looking east. The Turner scholar C.F. Bell annotated Finberg’s 1909 Inventory entry (‘Ancona’): ‘Panorama from a spot just East of the apse of the Cathedral’.1 The apse of the south-eastern transept of the Cathedral of San Ciriaco and its separate campanile are seen on the right; beyond, the view is to the south with the Cittadella (now heavily wooded) on the skyline, aligned with the dome of the church of Santi Pellegrino e Teresa over the brow of the headland. Today the view is somewhat obscured by modern buildings and trees in the cathedral’s car park.
