Catalogue entry

This view of the city of Nuremberg, Germany, was taken from the River Pegnitz and looks towards the Neutor (in the middle distance at left), the Imperial Castle (atop the heights in the distance at centre) and the Church of St Sebaldus (centre right). Turner took this sketch near the Kettensteg, a pedestrian bridge in Nuremberg’s Old Town.
