In the upper left-hand quadrant of this page Turner worked a study of the Tour St-Aubin in the medieval city of Angers, located on the River Maine close to its confluence with the Loire. A sketch of the city’s medieval walls has been identified in the bottom right-hand corner.1 The sketch continues onto folio 25 verso (D23199; Turner Bequest CCXLVIII 25a). Turner made extensive study of Angers in this volume. A list of his drawings of the city is provided in the sketchbook introduction.
