Mountainous Landscape with Ruins and Buildings
Ramsay Richard Reinagle

The strong horizontal composition of the sketch suggests that it was made as a study for a panorama painting. The colours are muted, the forms not sharply distinguished from one another, and the paint applied thinly, almost like watercolour. The space seems compressed, with the farm buildings and ruins in the middle distance forming a single horizontal line.
