Turner visited Grenoble in 1802 on his first continental tour, and made a series of drawings of the city and its surrounding mountains. Those in the so-called 'Grenoble' sketchbook are in monochrome media on toned paper. Here Turner has captured the vivid effect of sunlight on the walls of the fortress beside the Drac, and observed the bustling life of the river.
