Catalogue entry

The monogram appears to be similar to that on Tate D00198 (Turner Bequest XVIII C). There is an offset of this drawing on Tate D00060 (Turner Bequest V G). Bower1 suggests that the sheet is half of Tate D00206 (Turner Bequest XVIII K), though the torn edges do not exactly correspond.
