Catalogue entry

This Midlands subject, inverted relative to the sketchbook’s foliation, with a three-arched bridge and a church spire, currently remains unidentified. The lower view continues across folio 20 recto opposite (D22357), while the upper appears to be a slighter reprise of the main subject.
