The principal drawing shows Dresden from Brühl Terrace, with the Castle and Cathedral at left, and the bridge over the Elbe at right. The bridge is continued in a small sketch at top right, with Neustadt on the opposite side of the river. Numbers and initials are inscribed across the Elbe: ‘12’, ‘12’, ‘4 ½’, ‘BW’, ‘W|Y’.
The drawing rendered inversely to the principal view shows the monument to General Moreau at Racknitz, a suburb of Dresden (see Tate D31034; Turner Bequest CCCVII 8). The hills surrounding Dresden are visible in the background.
