The largest of these sketches is compositionally similar to representations of Huy in two drawings: Tate D20222, D28139; Turner Bequest CCLXXXVII 51a, CCXX O. It forms the basis of a gouache, pen and ink, and watercolour drawing on blue paper entitled Huy from the West: Bird’s-eye View, c.1839 (Tate D20288; Turner Bequest CCXXIII C).
Above and below this principal sketch is a line of architectural features: rooftops, a spire, and what appears to be a crumbling piece of masonry. Parallel to the gutter of the sketchbook and drawn inversely to the principal sketch is a rough outline of the profile of Huy from the East with the citadel prominent at the right.
