Catalogue entry

This page contains a rough sketch of a landscape with distant mountains. The location is currently unidentified although it is likely to depict a view in Savoy. The composition continues on the opposite sheet of the double-page spread, see folio 57 verso (D14081). Finberg noted that there was a page torn out between these two folios, the remaining fragments of which can still be seen.1
