The scene depicted in this sketch represents a view on the road to the Simplon Pass between Domodossola and Brig. The precise location remains unidentified but the composition includes a group of houses in the valley in the central middle distance. At the top of the sheet the artist has scratched through part of the grey watercolour wash in order to describe the snow-capped peaks of the distant mountains.
For a general discussion of Turner’s expedition to the Simplon Pass see the introduction to the sketchbook.
