Catalogue entry

On the upper register Turner has made a rough and swiftly wrought jotting of figures: a seated woman and a couple of soldiers in uniform. Below is a diminutive view of Dinant, labelled as such with the inscription ‘Din’. At the lowermost register Turner has depicted Huy taken from a northerly axis, according to Cecilia Powell.1
