Catalogue entry

The outline of buildings in this very slight sketch is repeated in ink on folio 14 of this sketchbook (D04665). The subject appears to be the same as appears in the more carefully drawn view, extended further to the left, on folio 25 verso (D04681), and thus identifiable as Laufenburg. Buildings seen here are repeated in a slighter sketch on folio 14 (D04665).
