Catalogue entry

Drawn at the top of the page is a very small and faint sketch of a building on the bank of a river with the far bank at the right. Ian Warrell has suggested that this may be the church at Quillebeuf as depicted on folios 14 and 29 verso (Tate D24526, D24556; Turner Bequest CCLVIII 14, 29a).1
