This busy page of sketches shows various views of Zell on the Moselle (see Tate D19775; Turner Bequest CCXVI 113a), Kaimt on the opposite side of the river, and Merl, situated a little further downstream from Zell and Kaimt. In the uppermost sketch Turner records figures, fishermen, mooring their boats and mending their nets on the riverfront at Zell. Below, is a view of the town itself with the Church of Saints Peter and Paul and the Pulverturm, a defensive tower, in the background. Kaimt, misspelt ‘Kum’ by Turner, is swiftly jotted in at centre right. The neighbouring village of Merl (see Tate D19779; Turner Bequest CCXVI 114a) is depicted above a final sketch of Zell at rear where the artist has made note of the lush vines growing up the valley hillsides.
