This relatively detailed sketch of part of the façade of St Peter’s Church continues from the opposite folio (Tate D28061; Turner Bequest CCLXXXVII 10a). A typically Flemish house with a crow-stepped gable and bay windows has been drawn adjacent to the church.
For other views of Louvain in this sketchbook see Tate D28044–D28047, D28049, D28054, D28059–D28060; Turner Bequest CCLXXXVII 2a–3a, 4a, 7, 9a–10. There are also two drawings in gouache, pen and ink and watercolour on blue paper of the city produced in 1839 (Tate D20263, D24590; Turner Bequest CCXXII D, CCLIX 25).
