272. [N05521] A Sandy Beach c. 1825–30

THE TATE GALLERY, LONDON (5521)

Canvas, 23 5/8 × 36 (60 × 91·5)

Coll. Turner Bequest 1856 (142, I unidentified 3'1 1/2" × 2'0"; identified 1946 by chalk number on back); transferred to the Tate Gallery 1947.

Lit. Davies 1946, pp. 165, 188.

Immature and tentative when compared with the seapieces here dated to the 1830s and 1840s (Nos. 454–472) and closer in style to the Three Seascapes on one canvas of c. 1827 which is, incidentally, of the same size overall (No. 271 [N05491]).
