Catalogue entry

This slight sketch is difficult to make out clearly. With a two-arched bridge at the centre, hills above, trees to the left and what may be the approach to a bridge at the bottom centre, it may be comprise separate studies rather than a single landscape. From the page’s context in the sketchbook, these unidentified elements were perhaps observed in south Devon.
