The page contains a simple sketch, drawn horizontally, of a coastal view with high ground in mid-distance on the right coming down to the river stretching into the distance on the left. Two boats, whether sailing or steamboats is not clear, are depicted on the water at left. Finberg identified this sketch as ‘Banks of Seine’1 and the location has been further specified as Villequier,2 a town on the river.
There is brownish discolouration on this page, the edge of the staining apparent on the right, from damage likely caused by the 1928 Tate Gallery flood (see the technical notes to the sketchbook’s Introduction).
