Catalogue entry

This page contains three views of landscape scenery seen from the road from Chambéry approaching the town of Montmélian. The sketches are rather rough and schematic but visible in the bottom vista is an arched bridge across a river which represents the seventeenth-century Pont de l’Isère to the east of the town. For related views see folios 74–74 verso (D14114–D14115).
