Catalogue entry

Made with the page turned vertically, this landscape with trees beside a stream or path and a slender spire beyond a slope in the distance lacks the details to facilitate an identification, although the scene is likely somewhere in the vicinity of the sites in eastern Kent elsewhere in this sketchbook; see the Introduction. The building may be the church shown on folios 12 verso and 13 recto (D35780–D35781).
