See notes to D29257; Turner Bequest CCXCIV 24a for a series of views in the sketchbook, and a similar watercolour, recording Chambéry from the south-east on the road to Les Charmettes.
The present sketch is taken from a still higher viewpoint than that on the recto (D29260; Turner Bequest CCXCIV 26).
