This slight and swiftly rendered sketch shows Cochem looking upstream on the Moselle, from a similar viewpoint to Tate D28543, D28545, D28546; Turner Bequest CCXCI 3a, 5, 5a. The ruined Castle Reichsburg is seen in profile atop a mount overlooking the city, while the steeple of Saint Martin’s Church is sketched summarily below with the Capuchin monastery behind it. This sketch and that on the folio opposite (Tate D28548; Turner Bequest CCXCI 6a) are close to Cochem from the North, a gouache and watercolour drawing executed on blue paper (Tate D20238; Turner Bequest CCXXI E).
