Catalogue entry

This busy market square, with a statue, perhaps set on a fountain, a large building with columns or pilasters, an arcade beyond the stalls, and distant hills, has as yet eluded identification. It may lie somewhere between Brescia (see folio 19 recto; D14352) and Verona (see folio 25 recto; D14363).

The figures and buildings are continued a little way onto folio 19 verso opposite (D14353).
