Catalogue entry

With the sketchbook turned horizontally, Turner filled this page with a loose study of a steep hill. It may depict the island-settlement of Mont Saint-Michel which is the subject of extensive study in these pages. For comparison, see the list of pages featuring this site in the sketchbook introduction.
