Catalogue entry

The page contains three separate sketches, drawn with the page turned upside down, which appear to depict landscapes. Finberg noted the page simply as ‘Scene on river banks, &c.’.1 The sketches seem to be continuations of those inside the back cover opposite (D41081), whose location has been suggested as Le Havre,2 which would indicate that these continuations of the sketches are therefore also of Le Havre.
