This sketch depicts a view looking east towards Vesuvius and the distant Sorrentine peninsula from the Posillipo coastline. The precise location remains unidentified but there are a number of houses and villas scattered along the tops of the cliffs. For a similar vista see the Naples: Rome C. Studies sketchbook (Tate D16106; Turner Bequest CLXXXVII 18). Related views from the Via Posillipo can be seen on folios 83 verso–87 (D16070–D16077; Turner Bequest CLXXXVI 81a–85), as well as the Gandolfo to Naples sketchbook (Tate D15669; Turner Bequest 56a) and the Naples: Rome C.
