Catalogue entry

This is the left half of a double-page spread continued to the right on folio 61 verso (D10981), opposite, recording the same building (presumably) as appears on 61 recto (Tate D10980). The sketch is inverted in relation to the main sequence, which might indicate that it was added somewhere towards the later part of Turner’s itinerary.
See Introduction and Technical notes to this sketchbook for the change of ink colour, apparently from blue to red, in the numbering of this page.
