Catalogue entry

Turner has labelled the location of this sketch as Marino, one of the Castelli Romani, sixteen communes situated in the Alban Hills. This sketch appears to show the hillside town from the south, above the shores of Lake Albano.
For a full discussion of Turner’s depictions of Lake Albano see folio 3 verso (D15301) and the general introduction to the sketchbook.
