Catalogue entry

With the sketchbook orientated horizontally, Turner has made a swift and slight sketch of the landscape around Piesport, depicting the steep slopes that lead up to the Eifel mountain range. The remaining jottings are quick, isolated representations of a turret, river landscapes, and a church.
