Catalogue entry

This is the right half of a double-page spread, inverted in relation to the main sequence of sketches, continued to the right from folio 14 recto (D11391) opposite. This gives a more detailed treatment of the similar view on the recto of the present sheet (D11389), taken from a viewpoint slightly higher on the rock path, and slightly further north. A third sketch, still higher and further north on the path follows on folio 15 recto (D11392).
See folio 11 verso (D11387) for general notes on Hackfall.
