This brown and ochre watercolour sketch, achieved without an underlying pencil drawing, depicts the view from the banks of Dieppe’s port channel up the western jetty. The dark brown structure with sloping walls towards the centre of the page may be part of the defunct batterie system that still punctuated the long beach stretching west from this point.1 In the distance, in pale ochre, can be seen the harbour lighthouse on the western shore, and the long eastern jetty extending in from the right-hand side.2
For reasons set out in the Technical notes in the sketchbook Introduction, this work appears inverted in relation to the volume as foliated.
Blank; except for small patches of blue and grey watercolour transferred from folio 5 recto opposite (D35464; Turner Bequest CCCLX 6).
