Catalogue entry

With the sketchbook turned horizontally, Turner filled much of this page with wide landscape vistas punctuated by architectural features. His note towards the top right-hand corner of the page shows that at least some of these views were taken in the vicinity of Épernay in northern France. A list of drawings made at this location is provided in the sketchbook Introduction.
