Title: 1907P146 Two Bridges
Description: 1907P146
Two Bridges, 1833-1842
Artist: John Ruskin

From PreRaphaelites.org:
There has been some debate as to the exact subject of this drawing. It has traditionally been described as 'Two Bridges Koblenz' and thought to depict a view of the 'Deutsches Eck' with the river Moselle on the right. More recently, it has been identified by the Museum Simeonstift, Trier, as Namur in Belgium, at the confluence of the rivers Sambre (Sombre) and Meuse (Maas). The Birmingham collection also holds two copies of the catalogue of the 1907 Ruskin exhibition in which this drawing was displayed. One copy contains a small pencil sketch of this work by the original owner of the catalogue.
