The Turner scholar C.F. Bell annotated Finberg’s 1909 Inventory entry (‘On river bank’): ‘The Old Mainbrücke, Würzburg’.1 Finberg marked another copy in the same way.2 With the page turned horizontally, the view is from just south of the Alte Mainbrücke, with its monumental statues, east to the centre of Würzburg. The skyline is rather laterally compressed, bringing in the spire of the Marienkapelle on the left and the Baroque spire of the Neubaukirche on the right, flanking the tall tower of the Rathaus and the slender spires of the cathedral.3 The jumbled roofs along the Oberer Mainkai opposite have been replaced by more regular structures. What may be fishing nets lean against the bridge near the boats in the foreground.
