Catalogue entry

Forming a brief continuation to the right of the main view on folio 37 recto (D08009), made with the latter page pushed back a little to the left, this part of the composition is rather slight. The horizontals appear to indicate ripples or reflections in the river and the verticals the trees on the right-hand bank.
