Catalogue entry

Rendered in swift and fluid line, here Turner pictures the Meuse near Liège, surrounded by countryside. A house, half concealed by tall trees, can be seen at centre. The view is shown again at a distance on folio 23 verso (Tate D19597; Turner Bequest CCXVI 23 a). For views of Liège taken in Huy and Dinant sketchbook of 1824, see Tate D20095–D20099, D20105; Turner Bequest Turner Bequest CCXVII 8–10, 13.
