This page contains three distinct landscape sketches. The locations are not conclusively identified although they are part of a sequence of views relating to Turner’s travels through Savoy towards the Mont Cenis pass. The middle vista includes a ruined tower near the centre of the composition. The bottom scene meanwhile appears to depict a waterfall falling from a steep drop on the right-hand side. This is tentatively identified as the Cascade de Coux (or sometimes Couz) which is situated near the road between St Thibaud-de-Couz and Chambéry. The feature was mentioned in contemporary guidebooks as worthy of note and was described as ‘a stream of limpid water, which falls perpendicularly from the height of a hundred and twenty feet.’1
