Catalogue entry

Finberg listed this leaf as ‘part of a parcel labelled by Mr. Ruskin – “R. 277. Grenoble series. Inferior drawings.”’ The drawings in this group are pencil outlines, lacking the additions of chalk or gouache found elsewhere in the sketchbook.
This unidentified scene might be in the Val d’Aosta.
