Taken together, this sketch and that on folio 58 verso (Tate D28270; Turner Bequest CCLXXXVIII 58 a) form one panoramic view of the west and the north of Luxembourg City. Turner drew this prospect from a high vantage point to east of the Porte de Trèves. The sketches are the basis for a gouache, pen and ink and watercolour drawing on blue paper of the Bock and the Rham plateau looking over the Alzette valley (Tate D20246; Turner Bequest CCXXI M). The Rocher du Bock, the city’s third great fortified rock, is the focus of the present drawing, pictured diagonally across the pager. For further colour drawings of the Bock see also Tate D20273, D20285; Turner Bequest CCXXII N, Z.
