Catalogue entry

This page of slight, disconnected studies includes baskets, what may be a man carrying a bundle as large as himself, and shipping, with gondolas moving among small sailing craft, presumably at Venice.
The main sequence of Venetian views in this sketchbook begins until folio 37 verso (D14384). For other figure studies, see under folio 18 verso (D14351).
