Catalogue entry

The drawing is inverted relative to the sketchbook’s foliation. There are two views here, divided by a horizontal line a little above the centre of the page. Both show distant hills across a broad valley. The setting is presently unidentified, but probably in north Devon from its context in the sketchbook.
