The view at rear, produced with the sketchbook turned upside down, is of Dresden. Taken from the Elbe, the view incorporates the Hofkirche (Cathedral), Augustus Bridge and Palais Brühl, a now demolished palace built for the Polish-Saxon statesman Heinrich von Brühl.
The remaining sketches were probably taken on the carriage journey from Dresden to Berlin. ‘Branburg’ may refer to Brandenburg an der Havel, a town near Berlin. The central building with four onion domes may be Moritzburg Castle northwest of Dresden.1
