Catalogue entry

These are two roughly rendered prospects of Stettin taken from the Logengarten. The views are orientated inversely to one another. Stettin Castle, formerly the seat of the Dukes of Pomerania, and Church of St James are shown in both sketches, dominating the city and River Oder from atop a hill.
For other sketches of Stettin see Tate D31083–D31093, D31095–D31106; Turner Bequest CCCVII 32a–37a, 38a–44.
