Here Lausanne Cathedral is seen from the valley of the Flon to the west, with the church of St Francois to the right, in a closer view than on the opposite page (D29135; Turner Bequest CCXCIII 52a). The figures sitting in the foreground give the impression of a relaxed and leisured city. The weather must have been warm and most of Turner’s sketches at Lausanne have an unhurried feel, although the town is so hilly that it must have involved considerable work to reach his viewpoints.
