Catalogue entry

Drawn with the sketchbook inverted and continuing at the right on folio 60 verso (D25751) is a sketch of the shoulder of a hill with the outline of distant hills in the background. There are no topographical clues to help identify this sketch, which is probably linked to the depiction of hills on the reverse of this page (folio 61 verso; D25753).
