With the sketchbook turned horizontally, Turner drew a grand house from a formal garden with urns and statuary on this page. The building’s dormer windows and pilasters are typical of the palace Baroque architecture of Paris and the Île-de-France which were the subject of extensive study in this volume. Though cursorily drawn, the ornamentation recorded here resembles most closely that of the lost Palais des Tuileries near the Louvre on the banks of the Seine. Another aspect of this building was sketched on folio 57 verso (D24278; Turner Bequest CCLVII 57a).
