The various landscape and figure studies here were all made with the page turned vertically. Finberg subsequently annotated his 1909 Inventory entry (‘Various figures and landscapes. “Chiara,” &c.’): ‘“Sidiolli Chiasa. [?Abria] lagato Prigolla”. Chiara, btwn Milan & Brescia’.1 Chiari (sic) indeed lies between the two cities on Turner’s route (see respectively under folios 2 recto and 19 recto; D14328, D14352), leaving this study somewhat out of sequence if the reading is correct. The other apparent place names, written rather shakily and likely while in motion, have so far eluded clear identification.
The annotated figure and head studies seem to represent women only, although several hats are accompanied with a note on men’s styles. For other figure studies in this sketchbook, see under folio 18 verso (D14351). The very slight drawing at the top left may show a wagon and animals.
