Catalogue entry

Other sky studies are on folios 4 and 10 of this sketchbook (D05964, D05970). In so far as these depict land or horizon at all, they appear to be drawn in open country rather than on the bank of the Thames so might derive from the expedition to Hertfordshire when Turner used this book rather than from his spells of residence at Hammersmith (see Introduction).
