The page contains a sketch, drawn horizontally, of a church and other buildings. Finberg noted it as ‘Houses and church beside river’,1 and the location has been specified as Villequier,2 a town on the River Seine. The combination of pointed steeple and dome at the top of the church tower render it identifiable as that of the Church of Saint-Martin, which dates from the sixteenth century.3

There is brownish discolouration on this page, the edge of the staining apparent on the right, from damage likely caused by the 1928 Tate Gallery flood (see the technical notes to the sketchbook’s Introduction). There is a small hole in the paper towards the centre of the page.
