Catalogue entry

As Turner’s inscription in the top right-hand corner indicates, this page contains two landscapes views within the Maurienne Valley, Savoy, on the approach towards the village of St-Michel-de-Maurienne. For comparable sketches from the outward leg of the journey see the Paris, France, Savoy 2 sketchbook (for example Tate D14140; Turner Bequest CLXXIII 88).
