Ludwig Metz made only few drawings in this sketchbook, dated 1845 and 1852, respectively. With a pencil, he mainly captured landscape motifs as well as some vedute and biblical frescoes. The many blank pages and the lack of place names suggest that Metz opened the sketchbook at random to simply record impressions, without any intention of documenting them accurately. Some of the landscapes and architectures appear slightly southern ‒ Metz may have carried the sketchbook with him on a trip to Italy.
