With the sketchbook turned horizontally, Turner worked onto this page a drawing of the Palais Bourbon as seen from the right bank of the Seine near the gardens of the Palais des Tuileries. The dome of the military complex of Les Invalides can be seen rising up on the left-hand side of the scene. Turner made several sketches of the Parisian riverside in the present volume, a list of which is provided in the sketchbook Introduction. For the watercolours of the city’s quaysides which Turner worked up with a view to engraved reproduction around this time, see Tate D24683–D24685 (Turner Bequest CCLIX 118–20). These culminated in several engravings in the 1835 volume of Turner’s Annual Tour: Wanderings by the Loire and Seine (1833–5; later reissued as Rivers of France); see Tate impressions T05621–T05623.
