Turner exhibited a view of Abergavenny bridge, Monmouthshire, clearing up after a showery day at the Royal Academy in 1799; this may be the work now in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London,1 or an untraced version.2 Although the composition of this view is not the same as that of the exhibited work, it seems likely that is shows the same distinctive bridge. A sketch of Abergavenny Bridge occurs in the contemporary Dynevor Castle sketchbook (Tate D01496–D01497; Turner Bequest XL 20a–21).
Blank; possibly inscribed in red ink (the sheet has been backed).
