Catalogue entry

Made with the page turned vertically, there are five successive bands of sketches here, all apparently made on the wooded north-east shoreline of the Isle of Wight near Ryde and Appley, just to its east. There is a windmill at the far left of the middle view.
For other island views in this sketchbook, see under folio 2 recto (D20735).
