Catalogue entry

The studies of maritime vistas on this page are typical of the subjects which fill this volume. For more information, see the sketchbook Introduction. Three semi-decipherable lines of colour notes in the centre of the page appear to read, ‘Pink Cloud charged in cold Bluish in Meadow ¦Cold Pink going to Purple ¦Pink to Blue and Purple’.
