Catalogue entry

The Château de Dieppe is seen high to the south-west. The bastions below the castle are now obscured from this direction by buildings on the Rue de Sygogne. There seems to be a slight continuation to the right on folio 71 recto (D35613); for other views of the castle and town, see under folio 31 recto (D35541).
Technical notes:
There is some brown staining at the gutter, possibly indicating water damage in the 1928 Tate flood.
