Catalogue entry

This page contains three distinct sketches of hilly or mountainous landscape. The drawings are very rough and schematic although the central vista clearly depicts a river running through a deep ravine or gorge and the bottom scene includes a castle or other building. The various locations are currently unidentified although they are likely to depict views in Savoy on the road towards Lanslebourg.
