Catalogue entry

This page contains several studies of architectural and ornamental decorations including bas-reliefs from part of a frieze. The subjects are not identified but Turner has labelled the page ‘Foligno’, suggesting they are details from buildings on the Piazza della Repubblica in the Umbrian town, see folio 34 (D14718).
