Catalogue entry

This page contains three sketches of a road leading through mountainous scenery. The exact locations are currently unidentified although they form part of a sequence of sketches in the mountains of Savoy on the road to Chambéry and Lanslebourg. The central vista may represent a view of the Voie Sarde (Sardinian Way) near Les Échelles, see folio 70 (D14106).
