Catalogue entry

Finberg recorded that this sheet together with those now bound as folios 40 and 41 (D04783, D04784) were ‘found in a parcel labelled “A.B.30 P.O. Pencil and colour. Valueless.”’ As Finberg surmised, this is probably a view of Lucerne, seen from the River Reuss. For other Lucerne views, see folios 36 and 48 of this sketchbook (D04777, D04794). Another may be folio 41 (D04784).

Inscribed in an unknown hand in pencil ‘A.B.30.P’ and ‘LXXVII’
