With the sketchbook turned upside down, here Turner has rendered four slight views of Saxon Switzerland. From top to rear the drawings show: hills in the Elbe valley, the Elbe looking towards Bad Schandau and the Schrammsteine rocks, Schandau and Schrammsteine again with a boat navigating the river, and finally Liliensteine Mountain with the Königstein Fortress in the distance. The top sketch is inscribed ‘K[...]’.
