Catalogue entry

This page contains several swift thumbnail sketches of figures, including a man wearing a hat and cloak (top) and a woman with an elaborately frilled cap (bottom right). There also appears to be a rough study of some kind of wagon or cart. This sketchbook contains several pages of similar groups of drawings, see for example folios 13 and 13 verso (D16665 and D16666).
