This page contains three distinct sketches. The two uppermost studies represent variant views of the Duomo (cathedral) of Como. The drawing in the top left-hand corner, parallel with the left-hand edge of the sketchbook, depicts the side of the building from the south (from a point on present-day Vittorio Emanuele II), while that in the top right-hand corner represents a more general view from seen from the waters of Lake Como to the north. A related prospect can be seen on folio 62 verso–63 (D14262–D14263; Turner Bequest CLXXIV 61a–62). For a more detailed study and a general description of the Duomo see folio 63 verso (D14265; Turner Bequest CLXXIV 62a).
