Catalogue entry

This rough sketch was made with the page turned horizontally; it is not possible to identify the location of the subject.
Technical notes:
The leaf was formerly separated from the sketchbook, and the irregular top edge of the drawing, towards the gutter, has been made good prior to its being bound in. The paper is stained and spotted, with a blue paint smear towards the top centre.
Verso:
Blank; stamped in brown ink with Turner Bequest monogram.
