Catalogue entry

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 and may represent studies of the Val Gelon between Montmélian and Aiguebelle. The middle drawing includes a ruined tower or castle situated at the foot of a hill.
