Catalogue entry

The slightness of this study, perhaps of harbour and shipping, is typical of much of this sketchbook’s contents. For more information, see the sketchbook Introduction.
Technical notes:
The glue used to fasten the inside front cover of the sketchbook to the binding boards has stained this page.
