This sketch of Grevenburg Castle and that on the previous folio (Tate D28390; Turner Bequest CCXC 20a) formed the basis of a gouache and watercolour drawing of c.1839 (Tate D20275; Turner Bequest CCXXII P). The villages of Traben and Trarbach are depicted at either side of the Moselle with the remains of an old flying bridge which linked the two villages in former times.
For other sketches of Trarbach and the Grevenburg see Tate D28392–D28395, D28400–D28401; Turner Bequest CCXC 21a–23, 25a–26.
