This rough sketch of Luxembourg depicts the Grünewald at the left, the Bock and the city at right. The bridge and the French military engineer Vauban’s towers are visible in the foreground. This drawing and others (Tate D28281, D28283–D28287; Turner Bequest CCLXXXVIII 64, 65–67) formed the basis of a gouache and watercolour drawing produced on blue paper in around 1839.1
