Catalogue entry

This side of the page is now bound as the verso rather than the recto as stamped and described by Finberg.
Drawn inverted in relation to the main numbered sequence of subjects in the sketchbook, the sketch depicts Geneva from the north-west, just downstream of the Place St Gervais. The view is continued to the right on D29149; Turner Bequest CCXCIII 60a.
