Catalogue entry

This is a continuation of the drawing on folio 3 verso opposite (D03282). The inscription is apparently taken from the commemorative tablet let into the rock shown at the left of the subject. Colonel Lawless was presumably a casualty of the rebellion in 1745 of Prince Charles Stuart, ‘the Young Pretender’. As Finberg noted, a ‘Scottish Pencil’ drawing of this view is Tate D03380 (Turner Bequest LVIII 1).
