This sheet’s Turner Bequest number is stamped on the recto (D25400; Turner Bequest CCLXIII 277) and the associated monogram on this side respectively as now mounted, but it is difficult conclusively to differentiate Finberg’s titles for the two, respectively ‘River, with mountains’ and ‘A stretch of sands’.1
The recto is less developed, suggesting a grey, overcast sky above a yellowish landscape, while this side comprises more varied forms with a cleared distinction between landscape and sky. There is a vague sense of water in the foreground with architectural elements possibly including a pier or waterfront and a tower below a line of hills.
Finberg 1909, II, p.835
