Catalogue entry

This page contains several small sketches of disparate Italian subjects, including the façade of a building, a boat and studies of a willow tree and an umbrella or stone pine. There are also a couple of rough landscape drawings, one of which may depict a view of Senigallia, a town on the Adriatic Coast, just north-west of Ancona.
