Catalogue entry

This very slight outline looks like a barn or farm building, with an arched opening. There appear to be cattle on a slope at left and inside the building. The structure perhaps belongs to the group of buildings drawn on folio 3 of the sketchbook (D07541), where there are also a river, bridge and trees.
