The sketch rendered horizontally across the page shows Stettin from the River Oder. At right is a rough jotting of a boat with figures in a coastal or river landscape, which extends onto the folio opposite (Tate D31099; Turner Bequest CCCVII 41a). ‘RRP’ is inscribed next to the boat.
For other sketches of Stettin see Tate D31083–D31093, D31095–D31106; Turner Bequest CCCVII 32a–37a, 38a–44.
