Catalogue entry

Inverted relative to the sketchbook’s foliation, the composition continues across folio 42 recto opposite (D01202; Turner Bequest XXXVII 85). It is probably a subject noticed along the banks of the Thames near Battersea; see also folios 39 verso–40 recto (D01197–D01198; Turner Bequest XXXVII 80–81).
