The page contains a sketch, drawn with the page turned upside down, of a street scene with a church on the right. Finberg suggested an identification of ‘Street, with church (Probably Lillebonne.)’,1and the location has been confirmed.2 The shape of the church tower corresponds to that of Notre-Dame, and the shapes to the left of the church tower appear to be the rounded and ruined towers of Lillebonne castle. (For information on the castle, see under folio 29 recto, D23754; and for the church, under folio 28 recto; D23752.)
There is brownish discolouration on this page, from damage likely caused by the 1928 Tate Gallery flood (see the technical notes to the sketchbook’s Introduction), the edge of the staining apparent towards the top of the page.
