Inverted in relation to the sketchbook as foliated, the sketched passages on this page depict the kind of high jagged cliffs that abound in the Channel Islands and on Sark in particular. The top half of the page records the point at which Little Sark is joined to the main island by an extremely high and narrow isthmus called La Coupée.1 The footpath over this dangerous formation can be seen winding up from the centre of the page towards the top right-hand corner.
This geological eminence features frequently in the sketchbook; for a full listing of these drawings, see folio 56 recto (D23625; Turner Bequest CCLII 56).
