The drawings between folios 74 recto and 79 recto (D30600–D30610; Turner Bequest CCCIII 73–78), all made with the pages turned horizontally, are distant views of Würzburg, looking south from the sweeping north-westerly bend of the River Main, where the Steinberg and sloping vineyards still provide similar vantage points.
Cecilia Powell has identified the viewpoint here as below Schloss Steinburg1 (now a hotel with modern additions), along the terraced vineyards. The landmarks of the city are reduced to little more than a cluster of vertical strokes, with the Marienberg fortress rising on the west bank to the right.
For the extensive sequence of Würzburg views in this sketchbook and others elsewhere, see under folio 72 verso (D30596; CCCIII 71).
