These finely rendered studies, drawn with the sketchbook turned horizontally, show three parts of a wide-angled view of Trier from the west. St Gangolf’s Church can be seen in the uppermost sketch, adjacent to the cathedral and the Porta Nigra at left. The river view close to the gutter of the sketchbook shows the Roman Bridge, Altekrahnen, and Martinskloster.
