Turner filled this page with sketches of riverside terrain. The topmost sketch on the page has been identified as a view La Pierre Bécherelle at Épiré on the River Loire and located the two cliff studies at the bottom of the page to the environs of the city of Angers on the River Maine.1 More tentatively, he suggested that the sketches in between could represent the settlement of Bouchmain, situated at the confluence of the rivers Loire and Maine.
