Catalogue entry

Continued on folio 40 (D07583). Turner’s inscribed notes here and more extensively on 40 convey chromatic and emotive descriptions, reflecting the characteristics of painting and poetry and the painter’s poetic aspirations, of which he writes on folio 45 verso–43 verso (D07591–D07587).
