Catalogue entry

Turner’s inscription, meaning ‘Ditto’, refers to his drawing of the lake shore at Geneva on the previous page of this sketchbook, folio 42 (D04436). For Geneva see especially folio 5 of this sketchbook (D04397), and also folios 35, 39–41 and 44 (D04427, D04433–D04435, D04438). The buildings are rendered with some precision.
