The drawing was made with the page turned horizontally. Finberg later annotated his 1909 Inventory entry including his readings of Turner’s notes (‘“Rásé (?)” and “T...”’): ‘Russa or Rasun betwn St. Lorenzo & Toblach’1 (Dobbiaco). This would be the Rasun-Anterselva (Rasen-Antholz) district east of Brunico (Bruneck; see folios 34 verso–35 verso (D32328–D32330), although Turner’s inscriptions are far from clear and the rugged valley lacks any clear landmarks to link it to that particular locality.
A long sequence of sketches, mostly characterised as ‘Mountains’ by Finberg (with occasional identifications and transcriptions of the place names marked by the artist), lies between folios 7 recto and 76 recto (D32275–D32411).2 See the sketchbook’s Introduction for the likely overall route between Bregenz and Venice.3
At the bottom centre, a peak is carried over from the mountain view on folio 56 recto opposite (D32371).
