Other Continental Studies, 1780-1

Richard Stephens

Two miscellaneous drawings that seem to belong to no series are listed here. One is a drawing of the waterfalls at Terni on a wove paper measuring ca. 265 x 378 mm—perhaps the same type Towne had used recently at Rocca di Papa (FT278, FT279, FT280, FT281). A sketch on Lake Como is a close copy of a work in the Small Sketchbook series but is drawn on a larger sheet, perhaps at a later date.
