Catalogue entry

This page contains four distinct sketches which probably all represent views on the River Saône near Trévoux, see folio 39 (D14052). The precise locations are currently unidentified, although the scene in the bottom right-hand corner depicts a riverside house near a bridge, and the remaining three studies are all variant views of the same distinctive building on a hill.
