Catalogue entry

Turner filled this this page with a study of a street with a gothic cathedral rising up beyond. A pencil note on the sketch locates the scene to Bayeux in Normandy. This medieval city features on multiple pages in this volume, a list of which is provided in the sketchbook introduction.
