Catalogue entry

Inverted relative to the sketchbook’s foliation, this study continues to the left across folio 15 recto opposite (D13774). In the present section, there are slight indications of features (apparently architectural) on the skyline towards the bottom right. For other cloud studies, see the sketchbook’s Introduction.
