The drawing was made with the page turned horizontally. Cecilia Powell has identified the subject as the Oberhaus fortress overlooking the Ilz Valley.1 It is seen in steep perspective on the skyline to the west, with the spire of St Bartholomäus’s Church on the Ilzstadt bank to the right. The vantage point is above the confluence with the Danube (behind the viewer).
