Catalogue entry

These slight and swiftly rendered sketches show the villages of Onhaye and Anseremme, south of Dinant. The two uppermost drawings depict the Lesse, a river which flows into the Meuse between Anseremme and Forges opposite the Île de Moniat. A bridge crosses the Lesse and women wash at its banks; Onhaye, meanwhile, is pictured at a distance in the central sketch.
