Catalogue entry

Not described by Finberg, this side of the page is now bound as the recto. Drawn inverted in relation to the main numbered sequence of subjects in the sketchbook it depicts a town (perhaps Bethune as on the facing page, D29177; Turner Bequest CCXCIII 74a) from the ramparts, with barracks in the foreground.
