Catalogue entry

Like Tate D00724 and D00725 (Turner Bequest XXIX S, T) in this grouping, this appears to be an imaginary composition, seemingly executed en suite with them and possibly also with views of Blois and Tours (Tate D00673, D00674; Turner Bequest XXVII L, M) in a similar mode.
Verso:
Blank; not stamped.
