Catalogue entry

This sketch, evidently made in haste, is possibly another view of the Abbey Church of St Bertin, St Omer from the north-west (for the abbey see D29036; Turner Bequest CCXCIII 3 in this sketchbook). There is a slightly more distant view of the same subject on the verso (D29043; Turner Bequest CCXCIII 6a).
