Rendered with agile line, these three views depict the Moselle valley at Briedel and Zell. The uppermost sketch shows the first of these towns from a distance, with the ruined remains of the Kloster Marienburg atop the high ridge at centre. Zell is pictured in the central and lowermost sketches, with the Church of Saints Peter and Paul and the Pulverturm, a three-tiered defensive tower positioned a little way up the hillside. Further studies of Zell can be found on Tate D19778, D28376–D28377, D28379; Turner Bequest CCXVI 114, CCXC 13a–14, 15.
