These sketches show mountains in Saxon Switzerland.
With the sketchbook turned in accordance with the foliation, Turner has drawn a squared-off jotting of Lilienstein Mountain.
The other views are drawn with the book turned horizontally, in landscape format. They show Königstein fortress and town from a vantage point on the Schandau Road and Königstein again, with the fortress at right and Lilienstein Mountain in the distance. Turner has inscribed the note ‘Lilnestein & K’ at bottom left. See also Tate D30931–D30947, D30949; Turner Bequest CCCVI 24a–32a, 33a.
