Catalogue entry

Turner filled much of this page with studies of hilly terrain and buildings. The church spire in the upper left-hand quadrant of the page resembles that of the town of Harfleur close to the mouth of the River Seine in Normandy. See the sketchbook introduction for a list of the places in this area recorded in these pages.
