The drawings between here and folio 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.
Here, directly up the river1 is the Alte Mainbrücke, with the city’s towers and spires on the left and the Marienberg complex towering above on the right. The Stations of the Cross leading up the hill to the twin spires of the Käppele south of the fortress are indicated to its left by a diagonal row of dots. There is a view from further back on the verso (D30600).
For the extensive sequence of Würzburg views in this sketchbook and others elsewhere, see under folio 72 verso (D30596; CCCIII 71).
