“Lille” Drawing 2 of 2

Vignette, Lille Battlement

Pen and ink, approx. ?? × ?? cm (image only).
The editors of the Library Edition describe the image as a “sketch from inside the walls of a fortified town, with cannon” (Ruskin, Works, 2:345 n. 2). The cannon is viewed from the rear, and it points through a battlement overlooking a plain.
Ruskin is believed to have made a tour sketch of a subject in Lille, but the location of the sketch is unknown; see Drawings from the Tour of 1833.
