Drawn inverted in relation to the main numbered sequence of subjects in this sketchbook, this is the left section of a two-part panorama of Lausanne Cathedral and chateau from the north-east, now the hospital district, with Lake Geneva beyond, continued to the right on the opposite page (D29125; Turner Bequest CCXCIII 47a). Turner painted a similar view in a watercolour of Lausanne (University of Michigan),1 but the material there is treated rather differently.
