Drawn inverted in relation to the main sequence of subjects in this sketchbook, this sketch depicts Meillerie on the south shore of Lake Geneva, looking east towards the head of the lake with ‘Lime Kilns’ on the shore in the foreground. There is a thumbnail detail from further along the road at lower right.
