For Chillon in this sketchbook see notes to D04570; Turner Bequest LXXIV 77. Here, the castle is seen from the east, from the shore of the lake. Turner made a more all-embracing treatment of the same view during his tour with H.A.J. Munro of Novar in 1836 (see the Val d’Aosta sketchbook, Tate D29116; Turner Bequest CCXCIII 43).
