This newly identified drawing is on the verso of D04576; Turner Bequest LXXIV 83. Turner’s inscription refers to Meyriez which immediately adjoins Murten (or Morat) and was reached first as he travelled north-eastwards from Avenches (see, from this sketchbook, D04588; Turner Bequest LXXIV 95) towards Berne. His view is from the edge of the small lake of Murten up to the old town, with the Berntor left of centre. This part of the town is little changed today.
