1. Habspurg. 2. Rinikon. Watercolor. Monogr. "CM". 19,8: 31,9 cm.

This drawing shows the rare view of the Habsburg from North-West with the tower house and the Palas in the back castle. The depiction of the Habsburg is similar to the plates from the Schmutzer-Genelogy which could mean this was meant as the sketch for a plate which was never executed.
