Catalogue entry

The slightness of some of the details here makes determining the orientation of Turner’s view through the forest of Gothic pillars in Milan Cathedral uncertain. There is a similar study on folio 13 recto (D14345).
See under folio 2 recto (D14328), showing the west front of the cathedral, for other Milan views.
