Catalogue entry

Finberg identified the two sketches at Rouen on this page as: at the top right, the Place de la Pucelle with the statue of Joan of Arc and the Hotel Bourgtheroulde, and at the left and across the bottom of the page a quayside with shipping (presumably at Rouen).1
For a list of Turner’s sketches of Rouen in this book, see folio 1 (Tate D24500; Turner Bequest CCLVIII 1).
