This sketch represents Alpine landscape within the Maurienne valley in Savoy. Turner journeyed through the valley en route to the Mont Cenis pass and this drawing depicts a view from the road between St-Jean-de-Maurienne and St-Michel-de-Maurienne. The River Arc winds along the floor of the valley whilst the mountainous profile visible near the upper left of the scene can be identified as the Croix des Têtes, the highest limestone cliff-face in France. The composition spills over onto the opposite sheet of the double-page spread, see folio 83 verso (D14131).
