Catalogue entry

Various sketches of figures and interiors of cottage or inn kitchens follow on folios 6–10 of the sketchbook (D06863–D06869; Turner Bequest CIV 5–9). Perhaps these were drawn during a stop for refreshment in the course of Turner’s trip into North Wales from Tabley in 1808 (see Introduction to the sketchbook).
