Catalogue entry

At the upper register Turner has made a rough linear sketch of the Meuse south of Dinant. Below is a thistle, probably encountered on a sketching excursion in the hilly river valley, and to the right, three women washing in a small boat. Part of the sketch of a rocky cliff range and valley has been continued onto the page from the folio opposite (Tate D28169; Turner Bequest CCLXXXVIII 2).
