As Finberg first identified, the sequence of sketches on folios 3 verso–12 (D15913–D15919 and D15922–D15930) represents detailed panoramic views of Naples drawn from the sea.1 The artist perhaps had the opportunity to make these drawings from a boat during the outward or return trip to Paestum and the Amalfi coast. Visible in this study is the headland of the Castel dell’Ovo (Castle of the Egg) and the Pizzofalcone Hill seen from the east. The composition continues on the opposite sheet of the double-page spread, see folio 6 (D15918).
