This sketch shows the view from the western shore of Lake Nemi looking towards the town of the same name, recognisable from the circular medieval tower of the castle, Castello Ruspoli. The drawing spills over onto the opposite sheet of the double-page spread, see folio 20 verso (D15332).
For a general discussion of Turner’s view of Lake Nemi see folio 19 (D15329).
